The city is one step closer to an official
plan for Houston’s future! Blueprint Houston applauds
the City Council’s amendment to the FY 2006-2007 budget
directing the Planning Commission to submit within 180 days
a scope of work for developing a General Plan!
To plan, by definition, means to set a vision, goals and
strategies. Blueprint Houston supports a Houston General Plan
to achieve a vision defined in terms of the citizens’
values and goals. To this end, over the past three years,
Blueprint Houston has facilitated a series of forums for the
public to articulate its preferences for how the city grows.
The consensus of the May Citizens’ Congress II provides
valuable citizen input to the Planning Commission for establishing
a vision for the Houston General Plan.
Blueprint Houston will advocate for public involvement in
development of the vision for the General Plan and for attention
to the principles endorsed at Congress II.
