Welcome to Development Services

The Development Services department applies and implements many of the policies and initiatives of the Town Manager and Town Council found in the Town's Strategic Plan with regard to the Town’s mission, vision, and Core Values. As the Town of Little Elm continues to grow, growth must be managed in an organic way and with respect to our Town’s hometown charm and natural aesthetics.

It is our honor and privilege to assist you in your development projects, and we strive to be accessible and timely in addressing all inquiries. For more information about Development Services, contact 214-975-0456.
