Extraterritorial Jurisdiction

Extraterritorial Jurisdiction

The City requires platting of all property being subdivided within the City limits and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Being included in a city's ETJ gives a city the exclusive right to annex the property at some time in the future. Platting in the ETJ requires that roads, utilities, and other public facilities meet the City of Waxahachie standards in order to ensure quality and to be consistent with the remainder of the City upon annexation. The city of Waxahachie’s ETJ extended to 3 miles in 2005 when the City reached 25,000 in population.
