From City of Houston website:
“Livable Centers Studies
The City of Houstonv (COH) has been awarded Livable Centers Study funds by the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) for implementation in multiple study areas to create walkable, mixed-use places that provide multimodal transportation options, improve environmental quality and promote economic development.
By 2035, the eight-county Houston-Galveston region is expected to grow by an additional 3.5 million people. This growth will add negative pressure to the region’s transportation network unless vehicle trips are reduced. H-GAC’s 2035 Regional Transportation Plan lays out a strategy to address this growth – Livable Centers. These places are safe, convenient, and attractive areas where people can live, work, and play with less reliance on their cars.
