Planning Department to Develop General Plan

April 18, 2015

The City of Houston wants your input. What makes Houston a great place to live? How can we ensure Houston’s future as a vibrant and growing city? To answer these questions, the City embarked on a process to create a General Plan to guide Houston’s growth and development, enhance neighborhoods and better coordinate efforts to make positive changes throughout our city.

The city is expected to grow significantly in the next 20 years and Plan Houston is an opportunity to take a fresh look at how the City plans for all it needs including enhancing services to current residents while preparing for future growth.

The plan will be a high level coordination and decision making tool. Plan Houston won’t take the place of more detailed planning efforts such as the Parks Master Plan, the Library Master Plan, the Cultural Arts Plan and the Bikeways Plan. Plan Houston builds on existing plans, studies, policies, practices and regulations that make Houston a prosperous, healthy and sustainable city.

At this time of year, we receive inquiries regarding your annual assessment statement and when payment is due. Typically, the assessment statements are mailed out immediately after the District's last board meeting of the year.

In order to avoid penalty and interest (which accrues on February 1st), your annual assessment payment must be postmarked by January 31st.

Payments should be made payable to the District and mailed to:
Equi-Tax Inc.
Tax Assessor/Collector
P. O. Box 73109
Houston, TX 77273

Please do NOT mail or deliver assessment payments to the management district office.
