Final project plans for controversial TIRZs

Tuesday’s documents show that building plans for that zone call for a hotel, an entertainment venue, an aquatic facility, and park.

City council is expected to read the final project and financing plans for the controversial Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones (TIRZs) Tuesday.

TIRZs are meant to attract builders because utilities can be paid for by taxes that homeowners in the area pay.

Tuesday, city council is expected to read documents that ask for the approval of a project and financing plans for three TIRZs.

TIRZ 10 is the zone causing the most controversy, as it builds on a popular hiking area. That zone includes nearly 4,000 acres of land running north along the eastern boundary of I-10.

The plans that city council will read Tuesday show that building for the zone includes more than 1,000 single family units, about 900 multi-family units, and more than 3.5 million square feet of office and retail.


Tuesday’s document shows that projects for this zone are expected to cost about $89 million.

The second zone being discussed Tuesday bounds the old Cohen Stadium site.

Tuesday’s documents show that building plans for that zone call for a hotel, an entertainment venue, an aquatic facility, and park.


The document says project costs for this zone are around $26 million.

The third and final zone being discussed Tuesday includes about 1,000 acres north and south of Transmountain.

Tuesday’s document calls for about 9,500 houses and about 829,000 square feet of new commercial space.


Documents show that project costs for this zone are about $109 million.

Tuesday is only the first reading of these ordinances and a public hearing for the plans will be held on June 26.

The city will then decide if they will approve the plans.
