The Travis County Commissioners Court adopted Chapter 82 of the Travis County Policies, Procedures, and Regulations Manual. This policy, entitled "Travis County Development Regulations," (Chapter 482 includes right-of-way information) applies to the subdivision of all real property located in the unincorporated areas of Travis County. It includes procedures for preparing preliminary plans and final plats, layout requirements for streets and drainage systems, standards for street and drainage design and construction, fiscal security, construction permits and inspections, license agreements, and vacation of right-of-way easements.

The Travis County Transportation and Natural Resources Department reviews all subdivision applications for compliance with the adopted standards and provides recommendations to the County Commissioners Court which approves the subdivision plat for recording at the county clerk's office.
