Unified Development Code (UDC)

The City’s Unified Development Code (UDC) project began in 2019. It is the first major project undertaken to implement the Boerne Master Plan updated in 2018. The UDC will combine various city ordinances relating to development into a single document.

With the new UDC, the City can assure consistency to minimize confusion and contradiction between different ordinances, align development regulations with the Master Plan, and provide a more comprehensive and efficient development process.

Engineering Design Manual (EDM)

The Engineering Design Manual takes the “design” portion from the City’s existing Subdivision Ordinance and creates a stand alone document to provide requirements for development in the City. Design considerations include but are not limited to streets, sidewalks, traffic analysis, drainage and detention, and utilities. The Engineering Design Manual was adopted with the Unified Development Code in 2021.

Developer's Handbook The front page of the Developers Handbook

This handbook serves as a guide and source of information related to development in the City of Boerne. It includes resources for property owners, community members, developers, staff, and consultants. It is intended to function as a quick reference and does not replace the regulations and standards of the City’s Code of Ordinances.
