Greens Bayou Corridor Coalition (“The Coalition”) seeks to benefit the economy and enhance the quality of life for the more than 500,000 residents in the Greens Bayou watershed through flood mitigation, parks and trails development and economic development.
The Coalition’s vision is to foster, encourage, coordinate, advocate for and participate with Houston-area infrastructure providers and other community and stakeholder groups to develop an essential, attractive and well-planned multi-use waterway (drainage, recreation, economic, transportation) by:
- enhancing drainage systems to decrease flooding and property damage;
- increasing and varying types of mobility (park and trail system, water transportation, roads and highways);
- allowing for a higher-functioning utility corridor (electrical, gas, water and sewer, fiber optics);
- improving economic development within the watershed (industrial, commercial, residential)
