Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ)
This map is for informational purposes and may not have been prepared for or be suitable for legal, engineering, or surveying purposes. It does not represent an on-the-ground survey, but only the approximate relative location of property boundaries.” TEX. GOV’T CODE § 2051.102.
The Extra-Terratorial 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 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.
