The I-20 Freeway Corridor Land Use study area is located along Interstate -20 from Houston School Rd., to the west and Belt Line Rd., to the east and extends approximately an eighth to a half-mile on either side of the freeway. The study has three sub-districts along I-20 covering a total of 2,934 acres.


The vision of this plan is the "development of a land use plan that addresses future economic development, transportation, public utility, and other public/private development initiatives along the Interstate-20 freeway corridor."


 The I-20 freeway corridor land use plan was adopted in response to area residents' concerns regarding transportation, economic development, land use, zoning and other quality of life issues along I-20 corridor. The plan reviews land use and identifies opportunities for redevelopment, potential impacts of the planning effort, and provides recommendations on planning issues and neighborhood concerns. Recommended actions include identifying funding sources, coordinating with departments related to the issues.
