    Neighborhood Resilience Planning is underway in the Greater Inwood Super Neighborhood

    Neighborhood Resilience Plans are a crucial step towards realizing the vision established in Resilient Houston (External link), Mayor Turner’s citywide resilience plan unveiled in 2020. So, the Greater Inwood community is partnering with the City of Houston to create a neighborhood scale plan that can help address resilience issues specific to the area within the boundaries of the Greater Inwood Super Neighborhood. More information about the program is available here.

    Community participation in the year-long planning process is critical to creating a successful plan. A Neighborhood Support Team (NST) made up of community leaders has been established to provide input on what's already happening, areas of concern, meeting locations and agendas. Most importantly, they serve as ambassadors by encouraging participation from everyone in the community.

    The first phase of the planning process is to identify issues and opportunities. These are the things that are loved in the community or are going well, and things that need to be addressed. Over 50 people came out to the White Oak Conference Center on Thursday, July 27, 2023 to help paint the resilience vision for Greater Inwood!

    It is not too late to join the conversation! Use this Issues and Opportunities interactive map to identify places or things you love and places that need attention.

    Take a moment to respond to a short Vision and Purpose Survey to tell us more about your community.

    For background information on the program or to see what's happening in other neighborhoods visit Neighborhood Resilience Planning Program.
