Tex. Spec. Dist. Local Laws Code Section 3826.004
Findings of Benefit and Public Purpose


The district is created to serve a public use and benefit.


All land and other property included in the district will benefit from the improvements and services to be provided by the district under powers conferred by Sections 52 and 52-a, Article III, and Section 59, Article XVI, Texas Constitution, and other powers granted under this chapter.


The creation of the district is in the public interest and is essential to:


further the public purposes of development and diversification of the economy of the state;


eliminate unemployment and underemployment; and


develop or expand transportation and commerce.


The present and prospective traffic congestion in the district and the safety of pedestrians and the limited availability of funds require the promotion and development of public transportation and pedestrian facilities and systems, and the district will serve the public purpose of securing expanded and improved transportation and pedestrian facilities and systems.


The district will:


promote the health, safety, and general welfare of residents, employers, employees, visitors, and consumers in the district, and of the public;


provide needed funding to preserve, maintain, and enhance the economic health and vitality of the district as a community; and


promote the health, safety, welfare, and enjoyment of the public by providing pedestrian ways and by landscaping and developing certain areas in the district, which are necessary for the restoration, preservation, and enhancement of scenic beauty.


Pedestrian ways along or across a street, whether at grade or above or below the surface, and street lighting, street landscaping, and street art objects are parts of and necessary components of a street and are considered to be a street or road improvement.


The district will not act as the agent or instrumentality of any private interest even though the district will benefit many private interests, as well as the public.
