In June 2006, the City of Houston embarked on a major initiative, Urban Corridor Planning. This initiative will change how the City regulates development and designs its streets and other infrastructure in order to create a high quality urban environment in areas along METRO's light rail corridors: Main Street, Uptown, East End, North, Southeast and University.
Approved by Houston Planning Commission on June 11, 2009. Adopted by Houston City Council on August 19, 2009. Ord. no. 2009-0762. Chapter 42 Article IV.
