Walkable Places Committee

Walkable Places

Mayor Sylvester Turner stated, “Houston is growing in record numbers. More than ever, our citizens want walkable places that connect to parks and activity centers. Our city needs to grow and develop responsibly and efficiently, under the guidance of the Code of Ordinances.”

About the Committee

The committee will consider issues and potential revisions to Chapter 26 and 42 related to planning environments that facilitate walking, and create amenities for the public.

A number of areas in Houston are attracting higher density commercial, office, and multifamily residential developments. These developments present an opportunity to create more vibrant, walkable streets that support alternative modes of transportation. The City’s development ordinances should maximize these opportunities. The Walkable Places Committee will explore how these ordinances should be amended to achieve this objective.
