Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ)

The Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) is a designated buffer area located just outside of the City limits. Each municipality is afforded an ETJ by the Texas Local Government Code 42.021 as a method of defining potential growth and future service boundaries. An ETJ boundary cannot overlap with another municipality's ETJ, and property owners cannot elect which boundary they want to be part of, unless mutually agreed upon by the municipalities.
