The City of Granbury Zoning Ordinance regulates land uses and development requirements within the City of Granbury. Requirements related to landscaping, parking, exterior construction materials, lighting, land uses, building setbacks, tree preservation, and lot sizes are defined in the ordinance.
The City of Granbury Subdivision Ordinance regulates the platting process as well as infrastructure development within both the City of Granbury and its extra-territorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The ETJ is described as the land area within one mile of the incorporated boundary.
Where facility improvements are required by the ordinance, a Facilities Improvement Agreement (FIA) must be filed with the city in accordance with the Public Improvements Policy (PIP). The Public Works Department administers the PIP and the approval of the FIA. A letter of credit or a payment bond and performance bond may be required if a Facilities Improvement Agreement is executed. A variance to the Subdivision Ordinance can be granted by the City Council to allow a developer to waiver from the Subdivision Ordinance requirements.
