The overall goal of the study is to create a Livable Centers plan for the Texas City study area that will promote pedestrian accessibility, increase access to transit, promote a range of quality housing options and increase opportunities for private investment. The study should result in practical implementation strategies to improve the quality of the living/working/civic environment in the area. It should enhance the area as a destination which is walkable, transit-served, characterized by diverse housing and employment choices, thriving businesses, vibrant street life, and civic amenities. Additional goals of the study are to identify strategies to develop vacant land, re-develop sub-standard housing, improve economic activity within the study area, and attract new residents and visitors.
