What is the extra-territorial jurisdiction (ETJ)?

The extra-territorial jurisdiction is the area surrounding the City where the City has authority to review subdivisions for compliance with the subdivision ordinance of the City and authority to issue building permits to ensure compliance with the building code. This authority helps to ensure that growth surrounding the City will be consistent with the standards of the City which helps to ensure orderly and compatible growth. There is no zoning in the ETJ. Land included in the Cedar Park ETJ may only be annexed by the City of Cedar Park.
