The Public Review Group, formerly known as the Acceptance Group, oversees the design and construction of projects with publicly dedicated Right-of-Way that are built with funds from the development community such as subdivisions and street dedications. We also monitor work being done in the existing Harris County Right-of-Way through the Notification Permit process. To accomplish this goal we have four sections that work hard to meet the demand. The Plan Review section makes sure the site plans meet all Harris County and City of Houston regulations as adopted by Commissioners Court and the Houston City Council. The Acceptance section makes sure all the sites are inspected to ensure that they were constructed per the approved plans and prepares the documentation to have the new streets put on the Harris County Road Log. The Asset Log section maintains and updates the Road Log as well as the other Harris County assets such as buildings and parks. The Notification Permit section reviews, issues permits and inspects work being done in existing Harris County Right-of-way such as left turn lanes, median openings, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, waterlines, bores and pipeline construction.
OUR MISSION IS TO SERVE THE CONSTITUENTS OF HARRIS COUNTY THROUGH PLAN REVIEW, PERMITTING AND INSPECTIONS TO ENSURE THAT ALL PROJECTS MEET THE MINIMUM CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS. THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF THE PUBLIC IS OUR TOP PRIORITY.
