Blog Post: Old Fitzhugh Road Concept Plan (a TIRZ project) Approved

If you’re familiar with the Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone or TIRZ, then you may know it’s a funding mechanism the City of Dripping Springs is using. There are two areas or “zones” that have been created. I’ll go more into detail about how it works later in this post.

The City continues to make headway with the TIRZ projects. Most recently, the Dripping Springs City Council approved the Old Fitzhugh Road Concept Plan on August 21. This plan seeks to preserve the rural character of the current street while improving traffic flow, pedestrian access and safety, and drainage issues.  It will remain a two-lane road and will complement the improvements made on Mercer Street several years ago.  The plan has an eight-foot wide walking trail on one side of the road, and the road will have curbs on one side to direct water flow into the natural drainage areas.  Below is a rendering of the plan.
