Zoning / Special Use Permits


The purpose of zoning land in the City of New Braunfels is to promote the health, safety, and general welfare of the public. Zoning districts and regulations are established to: 

  • Maintain land use compatibility
  • Provide fire separation
  • Prevent overcrowding of land
  • Ensure adequate light and air
  • Guarantee sufficient transportation, utilities, parks and other public facilities to accommodate growth

Descriptions of the various zoning districts are available in the Zoning Ordinance.
