Zoning establishes the permitted and conditional uses on a property and associated site development regulations like setbacks, height, landscaping, and lot coverage. Zoning, in part, is used in the city limits to assist in the safe, orderly, healthful, and coordinated development of the city, to conserve existing and future developments, protect the value of real property, and facilitate the adequate and efficient provision of transportation, water, wastewater, schools, parks, emergency and recreational facilities, and other public requirements. The City does not regulate the use of property in the ETJ, Travis County issues permits in the ETJ.
