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. 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. The process can be completed online prior to beginning work on your home.
