Study Summary and Goals

The goal of the study is to create a plan for the study area that will define new, context-sensitive standards for the North Houston District that foster multi-modal access and connectivity, a mix of land uses, a diversity of housing options, and a sense of place. The study results in a forward-looking vision and practical implementation strategies that consider responsible stewardship of the North Houston District’s existing resources to best meet anticipated population growth.

Received 2020 Gold Planning Achievement Award in Urban Design from the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association (APATX).
