An Ordinance authorizing the release of approximately 600 acres from the City of San Antonio to the City of Converse.


Consistent with the Interlocal Agreement, the City of Converse has requested that San Antonio release approximately 600 acres of Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) area. The subject area is generally located in east Bexar County, southwest of the City of Converse, and northwest of the intersection of NE Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 East.

On November 15, 2016 the City of Converse Council, by resolution, requested that the City of San Antonio release 403 acres of land, northwest of the intersection of NE Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 East. Based on further negotiations between the City of San Antonio and the City of Converse, the request was then updated to an area consisting of 600 acres. Upon release, Converse plans to extend its ETJ to the property and annex the area. Converse, a home rule municipality, may annex properties unilaterally or by consent of the property owners. The proposed ETJ area is contiguous to the existing Converse municipal boundaries and will provide logical planning and service delivery boundaries.

State law allows cities with population of 5,000 to 24,999 a one mile ETJ area around their city limits (Converse's 2015 US Census population was 21,987).

The City of San Antonio does not provide municipal services to the subject area since it located within an unincorporated area of San Antonio's ETJ. If the subject area is transferred to Converse's ETJ, there would be no changes in service providers:
* San Antonio River Authority - sewer provider
* CPS Energy
* Bexar County Sheriff's Office
* ...
