Annexation History

The original corporate boundaries of the City (Village until 2007) of Bee Cave were established in 1987. The boundaries have shifted in subsequent years as the City has annexed property from within its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).

Annexations in Recent Years

In May 2013, the citizens of Bee Cave elected to adopt a new form of government known as Home Rule, which provided the ability for the City to initiate annexation. State law permits any Home Rule City, within a calendar year, to annex up to an amount equivalent of up to 10% of land within its corporate limits. Land owners with agricultural exemptions through Travis Central Appraisal District are eligible to enter into Development Agreements with the City prior to their property being annexed, which is why the land ultimately annexed sometimes differs from amount initiated for annexation.

The maps to the right depict all City-initiated and landowner-initiated annexations since Bee Cave became Home Rule in 2013. The last map shows the annexations underway for the current calendar year.

    The Future Land Use Plan is a short- and long- range, general guide for the development and use of all land within the City of Bee Cave and its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). It is based up on a vision of the City as a livable community that maintains its inpiduality, but also has a regional identity in the Texas Hill Country.

    Development Agreements Map

    The Texas Local Government Code allows a city to enter into a Development Agreement with a property owner for land located within the city's Extraterritorial Jurisdiction. The scope of such an agreement provides direction for how the land will develop and may address topics such as timing of annexation, land uses, development standards, building construction, subdivision, and infrastructure. All Bee Cave Development Agreements and their amendments reflected on this map are available here.

    Stormwater Quality Ponds Map

    Water quality ponds treat Non-Point Source (NPS) Pollution. Non-point Source Pollution is stormwater contamination that is attributable to diffuse sources, such as oil and grease from vehicles; sediment from improperly managed construction sites; and excess fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides. Such pollution results in the humanmade or human-induced alteration of the chemical, physical, biological, and/or radiological integrity of stormwater. With much of its jurisdiction within the Little Barton Creek Watershed and the Edwards Aquifer Contributing Zone, Bee Cave has prioritized management of this issue through caps in impervious cover and requiring on-site stormwater pollutant removal at the time of development. There are several approved approaches to removing excess phosphorus, nitrogen, oil, grease, sediments, and other water pollutants, but among the most common in Bee Cave are water quality and detention ponds, which are often used in combination. This map depicts the location of these ponds.
