SD & Development Code

On May 10, 2011 Judge Davis addressed the City Board of Directors, joining with numerous citizens asking the City to fully rescind it’s claim of Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction outside the city limits. Mayor Ruth Carney and Director Peggy Maruthur voted to rescind, but the remainder of the board voted “NO”.  Director Pat McCabe expressed a willingness to re-visit the question of rescinding the ETJ, but only after the County Judge accomplished passage of the County Subdivision/Road Standards/Planning legislation that Judge Davis said he intended to bring to the Quorum Court.

I am forwarding Mr. Matthews revised Subdivision Code for your review.  This was previously approved by both the Public Health, Welfare & Safety Committee and the Public Works & Buildings Committee, with the amendments that Mr. Matthews has now revised.  The County Attorney is receiving this email as well so he can review and report any necessary changes.  This will not return to a committee but will be voted on during the October 14th, 2013 Quorum Court meeting.
Judge Davis told me to remind you that even though you pass this document now, it is still a “living” document in that it may require amendments.  Any necessary amendments can be completed as they become necessary.
Let us know if you need anything further or if you have questions before the meeting.
