Sustainable Places: Redevelopment Analysis for Communities in Central Texas

Capital Area Council of Governments

As part of a larger consulting team, TXP was contracted to participate in an ambitious regional planning initiative aimed at helping communities create livable spaces consistent with their local goals and values. The Sustainable Places project combined extensive stakeholder interviews and community outreach with an innovative, GIS-based analytic tool for scenario planning to refine an action plan for future growth in each community. TXP participated in the local forums to review the feasibility of the analytic tool and refine early plans for development. TXP provided input on the datasets for use by the Analytics Team as well as a market demand analysis to verify and refine their findings based on real world conditions. Finally, TXP was responsible for developing the financing and implementation action plan.
