Special Purpose Districts (PIDs and TIRZs)

Public Improvement Districts

Development with Enhanced  

Services and Infrastructure 

Mesquite’s Public Improvement District (PID) program allows for groups of property owners to request special property tax assessments for the provision of services above typical City levels.  Working with City staff, each PID may select its own budget and categories based on its goals and needs, subject to Chapter 372 of the Texas Local Government Code.  This may consist of eligible supplemental activities such as marketing the area, providing additional security, landscaping and lighting, street cleaning, and cultural or recreational improvements.  Each PID is operated by a designated management organization.  There are currently two (3) PIDs in the City of Mesquite.

Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones 

Improving Communities with  

Better Infrastructure and Public Space 

The City’s tax increment reinvestment program identifies under-performing real estate in the City, creates redevelopment plans, works with private developers to implement these plans and reinvest a portion of property tax revenues generated from new real estate developments in the area to encourage the implementation of the development plan.  The City of Mesquite currently has seven (7) active TIRZ Zones.
