Harris County’s Resource on Residential Development and Design Standards for Imagination Zones

adminAdvocacy, Land Development

Imagination Zones are intended to promote a mix of affordable, workforce and market-rate housing with design options that include a variety of housing types, mixed-use developments, multi-modal transportation, compatibility and connectivity, resiliency, and green stormwater infrastructure (GSI), along with hike and bike trail connectivity to schools, shopping, and employment centers, where feasible. Parks and open space will include urban gardens within the communities where practical.

These are non-regulatory guidelines that were developed post-Harvey to inspire unique, efficient and purposeful development.
