Over the last fifty years, Uptown Houston has developed from a rural area into one of the nation's largest suburban activity centers. Uptown is, effectively, a "downtown” without the infrastructure or public services traditionally associated with downtown areas.
The need for infrastructure improvements and for a higher level of public services became increasingly important issues for Uptown. As a result, the Uptown Houston District, the Uptown Houston Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ), and the Uptown Development Authority were created to work together to address the needs of the area and to serve as a catalyst to create, enhance, and maintain value within Uptown Houston by developing and preserving an urban center of uncommon beauty, gracious character, and dynamic spirit.
