Best planning and implementation toolbox

The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC), in recognition of the need for a more holistic, strategic approach to planning has developed its Subregional Planning Initiative (SPI) that is intended to help achieve regional and community goals through the integration of transportation and land use planning and its incorporation into local plans, projects, and development strategies. This initiative, which will focus on areas selected through an application process, will provide an in-depth examination of the subregional area, identifying the goals and priorities of the communities, assessment of existing conditions, and the development of recommendations and implementation strategies to achieve the goals and priorities.

The resulting plans will have a focus on the integration of transportation and land use, the provision of multimodal transportation choices and how different growth and development patterns affect the future of the region and quality of life for its residents.
