Study Summary and Goals

The Mont Belvieu Livable Centers Study provides recommendations to create a new main street and city center that will serve as a destination within the community. In this concept plan, the Mont Belvieu Main will have a mix of uses and contribute to a high quality of life. The project is characterized by vital amenities such as open space and year-round activities, housing choices for all and environmental sensitivity. Varied employment choices and thriving business will be well-connected to the greater community through well-designed sidewalks, trails and streetscapes. A few project highlights include:

  • A mobility framework that encourages multimodal transportation through the integration of Complete Streets;
  • A public realm framework and guidelines that establish walkable blocks and placemaking principles;
  • A downtown land use plan that encourages a mix of uses and housing types;
  • A comprehensive open space network and stormwater Best Management Practices to guide Low Impact Design; and
  • Recommended changes to land use and zoning to allow for mixed use and greater density in the Study Area.
