Suburb Law and Legal Definition

A suburb refers to a region or place adjacent to the city, a town or village so near that it may be used for residence by those who do business in the city.

The following is an example of a case law on suburb:

A suburb to a city is an outlying part of said city which is used for business or residential purposes, or both, and signifies the outskirts of a city used for the convenience of those doing business within its limits. The terminus of a suburb is that point where farm land and rural population begins. [Villalobos v. Holguin, 146 Tex. 474 (Tex. 1948)].
