Residential Parking Ordinance, Effective May 2013
The city has adopted an ordinance limiting parking in the grass in the front yard of residences:
Sec. 118-243. — Parking in residential districts
Parking in residential districts (to include residential uses and all residential areas) shall comply with the following provision:
No vehicle, as defined by Transportation Code, Chapter 541, Subchapter C, Section 541.201, Vehicles, shall be parked or stored between the residential structure and street frontage, unless parked on an improved driveway. An existing improved driveway surface is one made of concrete, asphalt, pavers, or other material approved by the City's Building Official, that form a continual surface sufficient to support the entire width, length and weight of the vehicle. Improved driveways must originate at the public roadway and form a continual surface. Parking surfaces added to an existing, improved driveway surface in the front or side yard must be connected and/or attached to the original improved surface. Parking off the improved driveway in the front yard area (area between residential structure and the street, to include the side yard of corner and irregular shaped lots) is prohibited.
Voluntary Water Conservation
The City of Texas City is requesting voluntary compliance on water usage. At present, we are requesting that citizens limit watering of lawns to the following schedule:
- House numbers ending in even numbers should water on Sundays and Thursdays.
- House numbers ending in odd numbers should water on Saturdays and Wednesdays.
- All watering should take place between the hours of 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. on your designated watering days.
Water customers are requested to practice water conservation and to minimize or discontinue water use for non-essential purposes.
We expect to increase water conservation requirements as the summer progresses.
This hurricane season, consider signing up for the city's emergency notifications. This will allow you to receive important alerts, warnings and instructions as situations arise. This service is open to residents and businesses in Texas City.
