Please contact us at (281) 298-5522 before beginning any improvements to commercial or residential property, in order to determine permitting requirements. The Community Development Department is responsible for issuing development permits and performing residential and commercial inspections for new construction or renovations to existing structures.
You can pull a permit for your project from our Permits and Inspections page.
The City has adopted building codes and standards that may apply to any improvements being performed. Check with the department staff regarding local requirements.
Shenandoah's economic development efforts focus on creating opportunities for growth and success through new commercial and residential development. City officials work to build relationships with commercial developers, recruit new retailers and network with economic development agencies.
The City Administrator is the initial point of contact for developers who approach Shenandoah with potential projects. He determines the viability of these projects and how they would fit into the City’s comprehensive plan. Proposed development projects are reviewed extensively by the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission, with final action by the City Council. The City’s web site provides extensive information to guide developers through the process.
Below are links to resources about local development. Contact Greg Smith, Shenandoah City Administrator, with any questions at 281-298-5522.
