The overall goal of the study is to create a Livable Centers plan for the Museum Park study area that will lead to a sustainable, context-sensitive, multi-modal environment that address the needs both of residents and visitors. The Museum Park study area has a mix of uses, existing transit, and is redeveloping and densifying, however, the existing infrastructure within the study area discourages pedestrian and bicycle mobility. 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 an urban destination which is mixed-use, walkable, transit-served, characterized by diverse housing and employment choices, thriving businesses, vibrant street life, civic amenities and exciting entertainment and cultural activities.

The focus of the Museum Park Livable Center study is the area bounded by US59 to the north, Hermann Park to the south, Almeda Road to the east, and Main Street to the west. The area is a high density area with a mix of land uses and a traditional street grid system. It contains major destinations that attract over 12 million visitors a year. The area is also an important connection to adjacent neighborhoods including Midtown, Downtown, and the Texas Medical Center.
