Planning Matters

Our Mission

The mission of Blueprint Houston is to assure the creation of a general plan for the City of Houston based on the citizens' vision, values, and goals.


Blueprint Houston reached a crucial and important milestone in 2014. Mayor Annise Parker directed the City to undertake the development of a General Plan, something Blueprint Houston has advocated since our inception in 2002. As the General Plan initiative advances, Blueprint Houston’s advocacy must continue.

Why Keep Blueprint Houston going? Public support for a General Plan is overwhelming: the annual Kinder Houston Area Survey regularly records 84% support. Community leaders know that now is the time to move the City forward. The City’s initiative would not have been possible without the sustained efforts of our Board of Directors and many supporters like you.

As Mayor Parker said: “A general plan is about good governance. Practical, innovative, consensus based planning can improve collaboration, enhance partnerships, improve policy-making and ultimately deliver higher quality outcomes more quickly and at reduced cost. It is time for Houston to join a host of other cities that enjoy the benefits of a general plan.”

Blueprint Houston has a seat at the table for this initiative. We are committed to acting as the champion of the public’s vision, values, and goals. Our work is not over. Join us to sustain our efforts and support “The Time Is Now” campaign to guide our city along this new path. Blueprint Houston has already provided meaningful financial and technical support to the City, support that will need to continue and grow. Join your voice to ours by supporting Blueprint Houston as the advocate for your vision, values, and goals.
