APA award people

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.
