Community Development

Our Mission

The mission of Community Development is to facilitate the vision our community leaders have set for growth and redevelopment, advance building safety where possible, and strengthen neighborhoods through the proactive administration of our adopted codes.   Our approach to development is anchored by three principles:

Promoting a Steward-Leadership Culture

Providing Exceptional Customer Service

Pursuing Excellence through Continuous Improvement

The Community Development is comprised of three divisions:  Building Inspections, Code Compliance, and Planning and Development.

The City of Kennedale is currently reviewing their Comprehensive Plan. A steering committee of our citizens will meet regularly to discuss the changes. If you have suggestions or questions for the steering committee, please email them to
