Attention New Residential Home Construction:  On February 14, 2017, the City Council of the City of Westworth Village, Texas voted to construct (concrete pavement) of certain unimproved alleyways that serve properties within the City and Owner agrees to pay the City for its proportionate share of the cost to construct the alleyway upon application and issuance of an affected lot's building permit. Owner’s proportionate share shall be calculated by dividing the total cost of the alleyway construction by the total number of affected lots to achieve an average cost per lot.

If your are building in an identified noise contour you must supply supporting documents demonstrating how you will achieve an interior sound level of no greater than 45 dB.  For residential construction, you can refer to the HUD Sound Transmission Class Guidance supplement from the Office of Community Planning and Development.  In most cases this can be achieved by following the most current energy codes.
