Spring Branch Livable Centers Planning Study

Study Summary and Goals

The Spring Branch Study provides analysis and recommendations for transportation and land use investments that create a more walkable, connected community. Specifically, the study recommends:

  • Initiating a pilot project to reduce the number of lanes on Long Point Road to create more room for public improvements in the right of way like wider sidewalks, wayfinding, and bicycle facilities.
  • Developing a set of character standards for Long Point Road to encourage “Main Street” style development and redevelopment.
  • Expanding and improving open space within the community through investments in the CenterPoint Trail and Haden Park.
