About the Streetscape Resource Guide

The Streetscape Resource Guide is a practical, photo-rich companion to standard streetscape regulations. The Guide draws attention to very specific examples where dynamic streetscapes can result from thoughtful planning, better design and full implementation. It illustrates that superior outcomes can result as easily as mediocre ones.

Version 2.0 of the SRG has added examples of well-designed bikeway facilities, transit stops, and sidewalk-to-street pathway connectors.

The SRG is 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.
