A study is underway to help the Montrose Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone develop a long-range plan for the area, and its first public input session is scheduled this week.

Consulting firm Asakura Robinson is leading the Livable Centers study, part of a Houston-Galveston Area Council program designed to help communities develop comprehensive plans for public infrastructure and development.

The Montrose public workshop will be held virtually Thursday, Sept. 10, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with streams available through both Zoom and Facebook.

The Montrose TIRZ is funded through a portion of property tax collections within its defined boundaries. It has an approved budget of $167 million, based on projected revenues over the next 25 years, according to city records. Its project budget is divided into four categories—corridor improvements, affordable housing, parking and cultural amenities.
