LOCATION Houston, TX
Program Manager Until 2029
In Capital Improvements
Jones|Carter has served as the Program Manager for City of Houston TIRZ 5, otherwise known as Memorial Heights Redevelopment Authority (MHRA) since 2015. MHRA was established in 1996 to provide the necessary plans and programs to support the projected growth in the Memorial Heights and White Oak Bayou recreational corridor. The MHRA is primarily focused on reconstruction of public infrastructure that encourages economic growth through private redevelopment. In 2015, annexation resulted in MHRA’s ability to begin improvements focused on the long-term stability and the viability of the area.
The J|C Team is responsible for developing capital improvement plans, which includes the creation of a potential projects list comprising long and short-term improvements. The Team was integral in pursuing necessary funding by helping with grant application preparation as well as determining other potential sources of funds for the MHRA. The J|C Team identifies projects, determines scopes, and creates budgets to guide the board of directors as they seek to best utilize public funds.
Pre-engineering services are provided for all projects, including cost-estimation, site visits, scheduling, and preliminary analyses as necessary. The team also oversees design and construction management on each project. The J|C team hosts public meetings to engage and inform the public of the status of active projects.
Since beginning work with MHRA, J|C has worked on projects at various stages valuing approximately $100 million. Over the next five years, J|C will help implement the current $102 million capital improvement plan. J|C is under contract to serve the MHRA as Program Manager for the life of the TIRZ, which is currently scheduled to end in 2029.
