Tex. Local Gov't Code Section 397A.106
Regional Compatible Development Standards


Before exercising the duties described by Section 397A.105 (Commission Review of New Projects), a regional military sustainability commission shall recommend compatible development standards for the territory. The commission must consider, as part of the regional compatible development standards, the Federal Aviation Administration regulations regarding height restrictions surrounding a military installation that services aircraft and helicopters. The commission shall submit the proposed compatible development standards to the participating governmental entities for approval.


Before taking action to approve or reject the compatible development standards proposed by the commission, the participating governmental entities shall:


provide notice of the commission’s proposed compatible development standards to property owners in the commission’s territory, as determined by the most recent county tax roll; and


publish notice of the commission’s proposed compatible development standards in a newspaper of general circulation, if any, in the commission’s territory.


The failure of notice to reach each property owner under Subsection (b) does not invalidate compatible development standards adopted under this section.


The compatible development standards are final after approval by a majority vote of each participating governmental entity. Notice of the final compatible development standards must be provided to all appropriate taxing entities for filing in the real property records of the county.


The commission may include in the proposed compatible development standards a recommendation to a participating governmental entity to purchase property in the commission’s territory as practical to protect a critical military mission.


The commission may recommend amendments to approved compatible development standards. The participating governmental entities may approve the commission’s proposed standards under procedures adopted by the entities.
