What is the City’s Comprehensive Land Plan and where can I find a copy?

The City of Schertz’s Comprehensive Land Plan is a policy document that serves as a guide for decisions relating to the physical, social, and economic growth of the City.  The Comprehensive Land Plan includes goals, policies, and identifies issues in the following development related categories: Land Use, Transportation, Public Facilities, Parks and Recreation, Community Enhancement, and Growth Capacity. 

Comprehensive Land Plan consists of multiple parts including:

  • Future Land Use Plan – this exhibit identifies the land use/character areas for all properties within the City corporate limits and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).
  • The Parks and Recreation Master Plan – this document was adopted to provide for and continually improve park and recreational facilities, provide trail opportunities, preserve open spaces and rehabilitate existing parks in the City.
  • The Schertz Sector Plan- this document was adopted as an update to the Comprehensive Land Use Plan to address the increased growth in the northern and southern regions of the City.  It includes the North Sector Plan and South Sector Plan.
  • Master Thoroughfare Plan- this document identifies all major transportation facilities in the city and is intended to accommodate the ultimate development of the city’s thoroughfare network. It is a right-of-way preservation document, allowing the orderly development of a network necessary to support the city’s growth plans. Future thoroughfare alignments are conceptual, long-term and general in nature.

The City’s Unified Development Code is intended to implement the policies and objectives of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan.  City staff uses the Comprehensive Land Use Plan as a guiding document when evaluating development applications that involve rezone requests.
