Planning & Development
Engineering maintains subdivision plats and records.
The office also provides permits for excavation and some types of improvements within the public right-of-way. An excavation permit is needed to dig in city streets, sidewalks, alleys, or public places.
Emergency repairs to utilities may proceed without a permit, however, the department must be notified within 24 hours.
Driveway and Sidewalk Replacement and Improvement
Replacement or improvement of existing driveways and sidewalks or new work not covered by a building permit requires a permit for work within the public right-of-way.
Annexation petitions are also available from the Engineering Department. The City of Terrell will consider the annexation of any property eligible under state statutes. Contact the Engineering Department for information on annexation.
