Near Northside

Mayor Turner announced at a news conference that all City sponsored, co-sponsored and permitted events are cancelled through the end of March. Thus, all Complete Communities meetings have been postponed. As new dates are set, we will update this Complete Communities website with the latest information. Thank you.

Near Northside Action Plan

The Near Northside Complete Communities Action Plan is online! The Action Plan outlines the vision, policies, goals and projects that have been identified by stakeholders over a six-month planning process that included two large public meetings and an examination of six local community plans and studies. Over 250 leaders, stakeholders, and partners attended the public meetings, and provided valuable input and guidance. The goals and projects work toward a vision of a healthier, more resilient, prosperous, and equitable future for the community.

Planning In Near Northside

"You can not be a Complete Community unless we have quality schools and great educators to help teach our children."
"We need to spend more money in the arts. Let's build this community up"

- Mayor Sylvester Turner

The Neighborhood Support Team (NST) will work on implementing the Near Northside Action Plan. Two of Near Northside’s great assets are active civic engagement and multiple planning efforts that have been made over the years. There is a diverse collection of organizations that are working daily on the goals and projects listed in the Action Plan and other community plans. The NST will work alongside existing community teams on the nine topic areas highlighted in the Plan. Community members will report back on progress at each NST meeting. If you are interested in participating in the implementation process, please contact the Coordinating Team with a topic of your interest at CC_NearNorthside@houstontx.gov. The nine topics are:

  • Civic Engagement
  • Economy and Jobs
  • Education
  • Health
  • Housing
  • Mobility and Infrastructure
  • Neighborhood Character
  • Parks and Community Amenities
  • Safety
