Section 9: Zoning or Land Use Controls by Local Governments
Local Government Controls
In order to execute the environmental covenant, SB 480 requires that the affected property be brought into compliance with zoning or land use controls imposed on the property by each applicable local government whose territorial jurisdiction includes the property. This includes the county, a municipality (within municipal or extra-territorial boundaries), or entity responsible for groundwater conservation or quality. However, Local Government Code § 211.013(c) provides that a municipality's zoning authority does not apply to a building, other structure, or land under the control, administration, or jurisdiction of a state or federal agency.
