Extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) means all land situated within one mile in all directions from the corporate boundary of the city and its extensions, and which is not in conflict with the ETJ of another municipality, or with any duly executed boundary agreement with another incorporated municipality. A city’s ETJ is essentially the area outside a city’s corporate limits but within the ultimate planning area. Generally, it can be thought of as a ring around Anna which enables the city to regulate subdivision of land, however, it does not allow for zoning regulation.

The Subdivision Regulations (Part III-A of the Code of Ordinance) apply to all property within the corporate limits of the city of Anna as well as areas outside of the corporate limits of the city, but within the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) of the city. The subdivision or platting process can take one month to several months depending on many factors. Please call the Development Services Department at 972-924-2616 to discuss in more detail.
Start by checking with Collin County Central Appraisal District (www.collincad.org). Once on the website click on the Property Records search option which gives you the option to search for real property by account number, address or owner name. Once you have found the property, open the record and look beneath the owner’s name, mailing address and location, and look at the legal description. If the description includes a subdivision name as well as lot and block, it is likely that the property is platted. If the description includes information such as tracts or abstract, it is likely that the property is not platted. To view the plat or abstract map, you can also click Plat Map or Plat Map Image beneath the Maps and Forms section of the property page. Please contact the Development Services Department at 972-924-2616 to verify whether or not your property is platted.
