Walkable Places and Transit-Oriented Development
Proposed Ordinance Amendments

Public Comment Period Open!

Dear Houstonians,

After three years of comprehensive discussion, research, and analysis conducted by the Walkable Places Committee, Planning & Development Department, and other key stakeholders, the proposed Walkable Places and Transit-Oriented Development Ordinance Amendments was presented to the Planning Commission on January 9, 2020.

We need your input! The proposed ordinance amendments will establish regulatory tools to guide development in the city and help Houston move towards a more walkable city! The public comment period is open until February 20, 2020. For more information on the project, visit To submit comments, please click here. Thank you!
