Strategic Planning

The Greater East End Management District has an initiative underway to increase commercial and residential investment throughout the East End.  This strategic planning project was directed by Avalanche Economic Consulting firm, a nationally known firm that specializes in working with governments to create focused economic development strategies. A steering committee composed of community leaders, along with the Avalanche team, helped the management district evaluate strengths and opportunities in the East End. A set of recommended actions to promote economic development was determined from this project. It provided guidance for the renewal of the District’s Ten Year Service Plan in 2014, and continues to be an important directional document for the District staff and Board.

Contact pezzell@greatereastend.com, Director of Planning and Infrastructure,713-928-9916, for more information about development opportunities and commercial/residential investment in the East End that align with the Strategic Plan.

The reports developed by the management district staff and the steering committee, as well as the presentations made by Avalanche Consulting, are available:
