Development Services Contact Information

Development Services is only accepting applications, submittals and appointments through our online permitting system (Accela Citizen Access) or by email where applicable. No in-person appointments are allowed and all appointments are to be scheduled through our online appointment system (QLess) or by phone and will be held by phone or virtual meeting. While most services are currently available online, many remain available by phone, email and virtual meetings. Most inspection services will remain the same, however, we’ve begun performing live video inspections for certain permit types. Additional details for permits/applications, submittals, appointments and inspections are posted on the department webpages. These modifications will remain in effect until social distancing orders are lifted from the City of Fort Worth.

For all general questions, please contact customer service at 817-392-2222 or email Development Services.
