CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The proposed North Beach Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone or TIRZ has been a hot topic lately. However, residents there have actually been pushing for one for years.

KRIS 6 News reporter Greg Chandler is getting their reactions today.

After yesterday's joint city council-county commission workshop, it seems like a North Beach TIRZ is just days from passing.

City and county leaders agreed. A TIRZ is needed to spark development on North Beach. But what do the people who live and work there think?

The North Beach Community Association has made a TIRZ its number two priority for years, right behind fixing the drainage.

I've spoken with one of their board members and later I'm speaking with a business owner.

You will hear them coming up this evening on KRIS 6 News.
