The Texas chapter of the American Planning Association awarded its 2015 Comprehensive Planning Award to Plan Houston, the city's first general plan.
At its core, Plan Houston is a framework for sound planning and policy making. It provides consensus on broad principles that can guide City efforts. It includes vision and goals for the entire community -generated by Houstonians themselves. Plan Houston creates a strategic framework for a more effective organization and enables a path to a thriving, more successful Houston.
As part of the Plan’s implementation, the Planning and Development Department will begin facilitating a process to develop the fiscal year 2017 annual work plan. The annual work plan is a list of policy and planning projects for all departments of the City to pursue in upcoming fiscal years.
Plan Houston creates a strategic framework for a more effective organization and enables a path to a thriving, more successful Houston.
