Scenic Houston recognizes that thoughtful planning and development can help create great neighborhoods and commercial areas. The goal of the Streetscape Resource Guide is to support vibrant, prosperous and stable communities by enhancing the visual character and pedestrian experience of Houston’s streets and public spaces.

Understanding that any stakeholder interested in Houston streetscape planning and development could benefit from a definitive resource guide, Scenic Houston has developed the Scenic Houston Streetscape Resource Guide. The Streetscape Resource Guide is a practical, photo-rich companion to Houston’s public regulations. It is a tool for use by all stakeholders interested in how Houston streets can be constructed, using current standards, to build healthier, more attractive neighborhoods and foster economic growth.
