Programs: Plan to plan: in the spring of 2014, planning consultant peter park completed working with city staff and citizens of the scope sequence, and budget for developing a general plan for the city. The report was presented to the mayor and city council. Blueprint houston raised the funds to employ mr. Park with a grant from houston endowment inc and contributions from non profit organizations and individuals.
general plan: in the summer of 2014, mayor parker appointed three citizen committees: steering committee to review and direct policy; stakeholders committee to respond to planning ideas; and technical advisory committee to review techniques and actions. The chair of blueprint houston serves on the steering committee as do three other members of the board in different capacities. A committee of the board continues to consult with the director of planning and development as the process moves forward.

The grant application was successful and funding arrived in 2015.
