The Comprehensive Land Use Plan is implemented by a sequence of long-range actions for guiding the orderly and intentional growth/development within our city. Areas on this Comprehensive Plan - Land Use Map are assigned "uses" as described in the legend of the map. A Comprehensive Plan Land Use Map does not constitute zoning regulation or establish zoning district boundaries. The map that depicts these "future" land uses, as well as the complete planning document were developed by and approved under the Comprehensive Plan process by all levels of interested parties, from the citizen to city staff, and ultimately the City Council.

The ETJ is an area that is outside the city limits of a city, but yet still  falls under certain city requirements if subdivision occurs on that property. The City of College Station currently has an ETJ that is determined in three ways. First of all, Section 42 of the Local Government Code sets out the area of jurisdiction based upon the population of the city, which is currently 3 ½ miles beyond the city limits of College Station. Secondly, the ETJ is also set by agreement with the City of Bryan. Last of all, ETJ coverage may be requested by a property owner contiguous with the existing ETJ as occurred with Ordinance 2496 in 4/12/01.
