Land Development Ordinance Changes

  1. Background
  2. What is a Land Development Ordinance?
  3. Why are we updating the Land Development Ordinance?
  4. How can I provide input on the Land Development Ordinance?

The City of New Braunfels is working to review, analyze, and prepare an assessment of the City’s land development regulations, including the zoning, subdivision, historic preservation, and signs ordinances. This project represents the first update to these ordinances since 2006, and the first comprehensive update since 1987. It will result in the integration of the separate ordinances into a single, unified land development ordinance.

We would like to hear opinions and input from as many New Braunfels community members as possible during the land development ordinance process. You can access an initial questionnaire at the link below. This short survey does not require significant familiarity with the current regulations.
