How much will subleasing cost?
The "base" initial sublease rent payment is $750 for all tracts. In addition, a surveying fee may be required in the amount of $900 for Tracts 11 through 49 and $675 for all other tracts. The surveying fee can be waived if the property corner pins that were previously set for each sublease tract are still present and undisturbed. See the letter sent to all sublease tract owners, dated January 11, 2010, for more information (the letter is posted on this website).
Does the City have development ordinances that govern sublease tracts?
Yes, the Lake Shore Zoning District and Development Standards govern sublease tract development, and they are available on this website.
Who at the City do I need to talk to for doing a sublease and construction/use questions?
Contact the Engineering Department's Drainage and Development group at (972) 205-2170 to start the process of obtaining a sublease. Contact the Building Inspection Department at (972) 205-2300 for use questions in relation to your sublease tract.
Is there an application for the sublease?
No. However, it should be noted that an application will be required in order to obtain a building permit from the Building Inspection Department before constructing a structure on the sublease tract.
What can I build on the tract?
Refer to the Lake Edge Zoning District and Development Standards for more information on allowable uses for sublease tracts.
