The YSS is a designated buffer zone located just outside the city limits. Each municipality receives an YSA through the Texas Local Government Code as a method of defining potential growth and future service limitations. An YSS border cannot overlap with another municipality`s YSS and landowners cannot choose the limit they wish to participate in, unless the municipalities agree. As required by the Texas Local Government Code, municipalities may enter into a non-annexation agreement with YSS landowners to continue the current use of agricultural animals, wildlife or wood-growing products, by granting the city an allocation to impose municipal rules on the land, unless they are involved in agricultural uses. The agreement also allows the city to annex the land if the landowner decides to change the use to something other than agriculture or to opt for subdivision of the land.

The population of a municipality covers only those within the city limits and does not include the inhabitants within the YSS. An ETJ can extend as little as 1/2 mile (less than 5,000 inhabitants) or as much as 5 miles (100,000 inhabitants or more). Until recently, the City of Pflugerville maintained a 2-mile YSS (25,000 to 49,000). From 2018, the city of Pflugerville has 24.5 sq.mi.
and has 39.7 sq.mi in the YSS.
