Existing Land Use & Housing Inventory

The Existing Land Use & Housing Inventory (Inventory) is a citywide database of existing land uses and housing units, separated into categories (Retail, Office, Institutional, Industrial, Detached Single-family, Attached Single-family, and Multifamily Types). 

36,000+
ACRES

117,000 +
HOUSING UNITS

This new tool allows for zoning change requests to be reviewed for consistency with the recommended Mix of Uses in the Future Land Use Dashboards. Because land uses change over time, the inventory will be routinely monitored and updated to match existing conditions.

How do the dashbOArds and inventory work together?

The Future Land Use Dashboards and Existing Land Use & Housing Inventory are used together to compare the existing mix of uses in an area to the future mix of uses recommended by the Comprehensive Plan. The example below illustrates how this works for the Suburban Activity Center (SA) located at the intersection of Preston Road and Park Boulevard in Plano.
