Special Projects

The Special Projects Department facilitates development and redevelopment projects within the downtown area, while emphasizing quality urban design practices.

The department manages development investment and reinvestment funding relevant to the City’s Tax Increment Finance (TIF) District, Downtown Public Improvement District (PID) and Neighborhood Empowerment Zone. These funding sources, along with expedited plan review and inspections, have been the drivers of successful Downtown Public-Private Partnerships. We continue to be the liaison between DART, Downtown Plano and the Cotton Belt Line, and integral in promoting the City’s vision for transit-oriented development and the need for multiple transportation choices.
