What Is An ETJ?

The Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) is a designated buffer area located just outside of the city limits. In 1963, each municipality was afforded an ETJ by the Texas Local Government Code as a method of defining potential growth and future service boundaries. Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) zones are still controlled by certain city laws that restrict Texans from having a voice.
