Within the City limits, the office of the City Engineer reviews all engineering plans and requires construction bonds for the following:

  • Streets

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), Municipal Utility Districts (MUD), or other regulatory agencies may have requirements that they impose within the City. These will be referenced in the development plan checklist. A copy of permit approval from TCEQ, MUD, or other regulatory agencies must be secured prior to final plan approval and submitted to the City Engineer.

Regulatory Authorities: ETJ & Planning Area

The City of Conroe has been granted authority by the State of Texas to regulate certain activities within its specified ETJ & Planning Area. However, the City of Conroe has opted not to require any kind of engineering plan review or bonding within the ETJ & Planning Area that is outside of the City Limits.

Development within the ETJ & Planning Area are subject to requirements that may be imposed by
Montgomery County, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), Municipal Utility Districts (MUD), or other regulatory agencies.

The City has also opted not to review plans or plats related to development within the ETJ & Planning Area. As such, engineering plans, plat, and construction bonds for roads and their associated drainage are to be submitted to the County Engineer for approval where development is limited to the ETJ or Planning Area. Additionally, the County Engineer operates in the capacity of the Certified Floodplain Administrator (CFM).
