Planning & Development
Welcome to the City of Wimberley Planning and Development. Here you will find information on zoning, short-term rentals, conditional use permits, floodplain development and subdividing.
The City of Wimberley's Zoning Ordinances are based on the Comprehensive Plan for the City. The City of Wimberley Comprehensive Plan was amended February 4, 2016.
There are multiple zoning districts throughout the City ranging from residential, commercial, and mixed use. Finding out what district your property is in can be done by using the zoning maps below. The regulations for each district can be found in the "Zoning District Regulations (PDF)" on the sidebar or in the City of Wimberley Code of Ordinances on the websites front page.
Permitted Use vs Conditional Use
There are two categories of uses outlined in the zoning district regulations. Permitted Uses are uses of the property that are allowed outright. Conditional Uses are uses of the property that can be granted through a Conditional Use Permit (CUP). CUP applications involve public hearings with both the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council. City Council will make the final determination on the CUP.
Every zoning district has unique development regulations. These can involve building setbacks, maximum building height, maximum impervious cover, and more. Any new development is required to be compliant with these regulations in addition to other City of Wimberley ordinances and state building codes.
