Next Steps:
Planning Commission’s Six Committees

Last spring the Planning Commission established 6 committees to identify growth related issues that need attention. The six committees presented their reports to the full Planning Commission in May. http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/PC_committees/PChome.htm The Planning Commission decided that a number of the issues need further study and immediately established the committees listed below to recommend policies, ordinances , standards and or incentives as needed..

The committees will be comprised of citizens, developers and public officials. They are expected to begin meeting in the near future. They will be working in parallel with two additional initiatives on going under the auspices of the Planning Commission: a process for creating a General Plan and a process for corridor planning with community engagement
