Amendment of the Inner City Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) #11 Project Plan.


City Council is being asked to consider approval of the Inner City Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) #11 Amended Project Plan.


On May 24, 2001, the initial Inner City TIRZ project plan was approved by City Council. Since that time, the plan has been modified 14 times to meet the objectives of the Inner City TIRZ Board and the City of San Antonio.

(3) a list of estimated non project costs; and
