The communities of Fort Bend County have been one of the true success stories of the Houston region, and have built upon important investments in transportation infrastructure, high-quality housing, and proximity to the region’s top job centers and natural areas. To continue the trajectory of these strengths and successes, the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Subregional Planning Initiative is helping the cities of Fort Bend County to help develop a locally-conceived, jurisdiction-specific, long range plan which will strengthen and grow Fort Bend County as the premier location in Texas to live, connect, prosper, learn, and enjoy and excellent quality of life while preserving the distinctive character, history and resources of the region.
Asakura Robinson is a sub-consultant to Traffic Engineers Inc., providing services in public engagement, green infrastructure, and creating the report. Our input includes recommendations for a county-wide bicycle trail system and a Heritage Trail along the Brazos River, connecting the natural, historical and cultural amenities of the county. The study, a 12-month process, is engaging area residents, elected officials, private sector stakeholders, and local jurisdictions and agencies in developing recommendations for improvements to the County.
