Resilience Districts

To help Houston neighborhoods recover from disasters and reduce the future impact of flooding in vulnerable and at-risk communities, the City of Houston will establish Neighborhood Resilience Plans for three Houston neighborhoods.

These plans will weave together climate adaptation and risk reduction, economic development, infrastructure modernization and social empowerment into one neighborhood strategy. The Neighborhood Resilience Plans will empower neighborhoods to direct future neighborhood-based investments in the most effective ways possible to help reduce flooding, address vulnerability to climate and multiple hazards, improve quality of life, and drive economic opportunity.

Three neighborhoods were chosen to participate in this process: East Houston, Edgebrook, and Independence Heights.

Edgebrook

The Edgebrook super neighborhood is located between the Gulf Freeway (west) and South Shaver Street defining the Eastern and Southern boundaries, and the City of South Houston (north).

Located in District E, the Edgebrook neighborhood was selected due to the severity of flood damage from Hurricane Harvey and previous flooding events, vulnerability to climate and other multiple hazards, watershed location, and the presence of active and supportive civic organizations.
