Ever drive down a road, see someone clearing land, and wonder what was going in? Every wonder what the boundaries of your Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) were? Do you know where the boundaries of your City, Council district, and the City’s Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) are?
Plat Tracker is Gateway to Understanding Developments Around You
Here’s a quick and easy way to find the answers to all those questions and more. It’s the Houston Plat Tracker website.
Clicking on any one of the colored parcels in the map pulls up information about it.
Plat Tracker also contains powerful measuring and drawing tools.
Plat Tracker has a gallery of 29 different base maps. They include road maps, satellite images, and more. The possibilities are almost endless.
Plat Tracker is one of the best ways I know of to see and understand the region’s relentless expansion. Check out all the features on the Plat Tracker website.
You can use what you find on Plat Tracker to get even more information on the City’s Planning Commission website as projects come up for review.
