The TIRZ Board was created by Ordinance #7012 in December 2006 to make recommendations to the City Commission concerning the administrations, management and operation of the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (Zone). The Board must adopt a project plan and reinvestment zone financing plan for approval by the City Commission. The TIRZ is a valuable tool for local government to enter into public/private partnerships to facilitate implementation of the vision and goals for downtown Amarillo. The Board may perform all duties imposed upon it by Chapter 311 of the Texas Tax Code and all other applicable laws with the exception of issuance of bonds, imposition of taxes or fees, exercise of eminent domain or final approval of the project plan or financing plan.
