North Houston/Greenspoint Livable Centers Planning Study

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.
