Zoning is a land use tool afforded to cities to protect the health, safety and general welfare of the community.

Zoning is:

  • only allowed within the city limit.
  • is not applicable in the county or ETJ.
  • is implemented through districts which reflect the land use vision of the Comprehensive Plan (pdf).
  • defines permitted land uses, lot size and bulk standards, design characteristics and similar regulations.

The zoning districts and associated requirements are outlined in Subchapters 4 & 5 of the Unified Development Code.

Zoning Process:

  • A pre-application meeting required with staff
  • Approximate 90 day process
  • Notice published in the local newspaper
  • Notification letters mailed to adjacent property owners within 500 feet
  • Signs placed on the property identifying the proposed request
  • Public hearings held by the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council
  • An ordinance to be approved by City Council

Application Forms and Submittal Requirements:

For questions, please contact the Planning Department at (512) 990-6300 or via email.

Specific Use Permit and Special Districts:
The land use table in Subchapters 4 & 5 of the Unified Development Code identifies land uses that may be considered in a particular district through a Specific Use Permit (S) or Special District (SD). Both require site specific information, conveyed through a site plan, which will be initially reviewed by staff and considered by the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. A Specific Use Permit and Special District request follows the zoning process as outlined above.

Alternative Land Use Regulation (ALUR) District:
The City of Pflugerville offers an alternative to a traditional zoning district, which is similar to other jurisdiction’s Planned Unit Developments. An ALUR District requires a minimum of 50 acres and establishes a specific regulating plan and document for implementation. An ALUR will follow the zoning process once both parties are generally comfortable with the project. To determine if an ALUR is an appropriate district for your project, please contact us at (512) 990-6300 or email.
