Public Notice

City of San Antonio, Texas
Limited Purpose Annexation
Planning Study and Regulatory Plan and Public Hearings

The City of San Antonio is proposing limited purpose annexation of the south San Antonio area illustrated below. Limited purpose annexation allows the City to extend regulatory authority for the limited purposes of applying its planning, zoning, health, and safety ordinances in the area. The City may not impose a property tax in the area until the property is annexed for full purposes, usually within three years. As a requirement of Texas Local Government Code Sec. 43-123, the City is publishing the availability of a planning study and regulatory plan regarding the proposed annexation areas. The planning study contains projected levels of development in the next 10 years with and without annexation, issues and the public benefits of annexation, economic and environmental impact of annexation and proposed zoning for the area. The regulatory plan outlines development regulations and the date of future full purpose annexation.

Limited Purpose Annexation

A home-rule city with a population of more than 225,000 may annex an area for the limited purpose of applying its planning, zoning building health and safety ordinances in the area to prevent incompatible land uses. Ensure sound and safe habitable structures and protect environmental resources. The area must be within the City’s extraterritorial jurisdiction and contiguous to the boundaries of the city. Limited purpose annexation does not extend the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Limited Purpose Annexation allows the City to extend its City limits, planning, zoning, and health and safety ordinances. Those ordinances are:

  • Building Code (Chapter 6 of the Municipal Code)
  • Electrical Code (Chapter 10 of the Municipal Code)
  • Plumbing Code (Chapter 24 of the Municipal Code)
  • Fire Prevention Code (Articles III & IV, Chapter 11 of the Municipal Code)
  • Solid Waste Code pertaining to lot clearance (Article V, Chapter 14 of the Municipal Code)
  • Licenses and Business Regulations pertaining to salvage yards and auto dismantlers (Article VII, Chapter 16 of the Municipal Code)
  • Signs & Billboards (Chapter 28 of the Municipal Code)
  • Water & Sewers (Chapter 34 of the Municipal Code)
  • Unified Development Code (Chapter 35 of the Municipal Code) including, but not limited to, all zoning regulations.

Community Meeting Scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 5

The City of San Antonio Department of Planning and Community Development invites the public to attend a community meeting on the proposed limited purpose annexation of four areas totaling approximately 35 square miles generally located south of Loop 410, between Old Pearsall Road and State Highway 181.

In December, 2012, City Council voted to dissolve the City South Management Authority (CSMA), which regulates planning and zoning for a 63 square mile area, in conjunction with the City’s annexation program. The purpose of the limited purpose annexation is to extend zoning and building regulations to a potential growth area in and adjacent to CSMA. According to the CSMA Effectiveness Study and Economic Development Strategic Plan (2012) for the City South Management Authority area, the continued expansion of Texas A&M University - San Antonio, solar energy investments, the Southwest Bexar sewer line, a new independent school district campus, and Eagle Ford Shale businesses are contributing to the continued growth and development of this area.

With CSMA proposed for dissolution in January of 2014, the limited purpose annexation is necessary to extend the protections included with zoning and building codes, while allowing time for the City to develop a plan for full purpose annexation. This public meeting will be held on:

DATE: Tuesday, November 5, 2013
TIME: 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Southside High School Cafeteria, 19190 Hwy 281

Planning and Community Development Department staff will provide information on limited purpose annexation, locations proposed for annexation, the regulatory plan, proposed zoning, answer Frequently Asked Questions and provide details on the public hearing schedule. The limited purpose annexation and the dissolution of City South Management Authority will be considered by City Council at its regular meeting on January 9, 2014.
