Hollywood/Santa Monica is a Conservation District

ANY construction or remodeling of the outside of your home requires a Conservation District Work Review Form from the City of Dallas. This form is in addition to any other permits (such as building permits) required by the city.


Get your conservation district work review form before you begin exterior remodeling, repairing, or improvements to your home.

In a Conservation District, the guidelines are city law, and violations result in the city enforcing the Conservation District Ordinance with work stoppage or fines. You can download a copy of our ordinance below. The process to obtain a Conservation District Work Review Form is surprisingly painless and can be done by mail. Before you begin work on the outside of your house, send a detailed description of what you plan to do with photos of the existing area and sketches of your proposal to:
