Livable Centers Plan
The Livable Centers Study developed design recommendations, infrastructure improvements and urban design solutions that will provide residents and businesses with more appealing places for people to interact and gather; make walking, bicycling, and transit more convenient; preserve the environment; and create a unique community that will act as a catalyst for investment and redevelopment.
The vision for the Antoine Corridor is to transform it into a destination intertwined with the waters of White Oak Bayou and Vogel Creek, linked to the heart of Houston by waterside trails and enhanced transit, punctuated by unique parks and community gardens, to be reborn as a walkable, bikeable mixed-use corridor anchored by landmark buildings and lively public spaces.
The Near Northwest Management District Graffiti Abatement program is designed to remove unwanted graffiti markings to improve the appearance and security of the District's commercial and apartment properties. Graffiti lowers property values, reduces ridership on transit systems and encourages other crimes.
City Mobility Planning - Houston
Northwest Sub - regional Study
In 2009 the City of Houston adopted the City Mobility Plan or CMP Phase I, which proposed a new process for developing mobility solutions. These solutions focused on enhancing the capitalized investment made in transportation infrastructure projects by identifying multimodal system improvements that could be made at the time of corridor development or redevelopment (i.e. CIP, Rebuild Houston, TIP, etc.). The idea was that as the City invested in certain utility improvements – such as sewer or storm water upgrades – a systematic approach could also be made to increase the general capacity or number of users in a corridor via multi-modal considerations.
SH 249 Access Management Study
The Houston-Galveston Area Council and the Texas Department of Transportation have initiated a transportation study along State Highway 249 between I-45 and Beltway 8. This study will identify ways to improve traffic flow, safety, and quality of life along SH 249 as well as ideas to enhance regional connectivity on the area’s major cross streets. The study goal is to improve mobility and safety for all modes of transportation, including cars and trucks, buses, pedestrians, and bicyclists.
2015-2019 Consolidated Plan - City of Houston
Every five years, the City of Houston (City) develops a five-year strategic plan as required by the U.S. Department of Urban Development (HUD). On behalf of the City, the City's Housing and Community Development Department (HCDD) developed the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan (Con Plan). The Con Plan details how the City plans to invest its resources to meet Houston's ongoing affordable housing, community development, economic development, and public service needs during the five-year period from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2020.
