The Montrose Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) Board has big plans for the community! Asakura Robinson, a planning, urban design, and landscape architecture firm, was hired by the Board to lead the Montrose Livable Centers PlanUP Art Studio served as a sub-consultant for public art and community engagement initiatives. 

The plan focuses on three pillars that will shape the vision of Montrose over the next several years: Connected, Inclusive, and Thriving. An article that appears in the April 2021 edition of OutSmart magazine details the highlights of these pillars, including mobility improvements, affordable housing, and public art programs. The plan also supports the designation of Montrose as an LGBTQ Cultural District by the Texas Art Commission.
