Scenic Houston’s mission-driven initiatives are helping to create and sustain public spaces that build strong, healthy communities. With a lackluster, flat topography, Houston largely depends on its built environment – public and private – to define its character. For far too long, much of Houston have been constructed in a utilitarian manner, resulting in a city full of unattractive, unwelcoming travel way corridors and public spaces that do not enhance the unique communities they connect. Scenic Houston’s initiatives strategically drive the transformation of public spaces into vital places that highlight local assets, spur rejuvenation, and serve common needs. Scenic Houston’s placemaking and streetscape expert-led initiatives are essential, particularly now, in the COVID-19 era. During a time of heightened stress and anxiety and social distancing, the physical and mental benefits provided by a simple walk or run in our shared spaces have proved to be more critical than ever.
