The goal of the Livable Centers Study is to identify improvements that create neighborhoods that are compact and mixed use, designed to be walkable and connected and accessible within the Upper Kirby District. The future MetroRail through Upper Kirby provides an important public investment in the neighborhood that can help to initiate this goal.
The study seeks to build off of this resource with focused public and private improvements that guide short and long-term growth. The overall vision for the neighborhood is to create a place with a strong local identity that is economically healthy, vibrant, connected, walkable, and green.
