Extraterritorial Jurisdiction

With a population of over 50,000, the City of New Braunfels has a 3-1/2 mile Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).

The only authority the city has in the ETJ is that of subdivision review. Through agreements with both Comal and Guadalupe Counties, New Braunfels reviews all proposed subdivision master plans and plats within the ETJ. The purpose of city subdivision review is to ensure that the properties are developed in accordance with the city's standards, with the assumption that the area will one day be part of the incorporated city limits.
