Take a moment to sign our petition to support community driven development. We are proposing the following as solutions for residents to combat gentrification.
1. Require developers to seek approval from neighborhood civic associations or local organizations when the proposed development is not in line with the prevailing character in the neighborhood.
2. Encourage the City of Houston Planning Commission to support the adopted complete communities plan for Third Ward by judging proposed developments on long term impact to stakeholders as well regulatory standards.
3. Consider appointing individuals to the commission that have background in working with underserved communities.
