Interested in learning more about the region’s construction patterns and trends over the past 30 years? The Houston-Galveston Area Council’s new interactive web application, the Regional Building Inventory Snapshot (2015), makes it easy.
This new app, one of 33 offered by H-GAC, explores the 2015 regional building inventory and analyzes development patterns based on a building’s year of construction, building type, housing units, and nonresidential square feet. The app also allows users to compare annual development density for both residential and non-residential areas.
“The application helps local planning agencies better understand the dynamics of new construction and redevelopment activity in their respective jurisdictions,” said Pramod Sambidi, H-GAC’s Socioeconomic Modeling Program Manager. “Analyzing these patterns can assist local communities in designing strategies and making recommendations for sustainable future development.”
The app is powered by H-GAC’s Building Inventory Database, based on appraisal data collected and processed from individual County Appraisal Districts in Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery, and Waller counties.
The Regional Building Inventory Snapshot app is available HERE using filter keywords “Land Use” and “Planning.”
H-GAC’s interactive web applications provide information in a convenient, easy-to-use format. Topics include Community Planning, Demographics, Economics, Environmental Planning, Land Use, and Water Quality.
