The Museum Park Super Neighborhood connects and serves residents, property owners, businesses, museums, cultural institutions, park and recreational facilities, faith-based institutions, and educational and healthcare facilities of Houston's Museum District.
MPSN bridges communications and projects among the many entities that serve the Museum District: Museum Park Neighborhood Association (residents), Greater Southeast Management District, OST/Almeda TIRZ, Hermann Park Conservancy, Museum District Association, South Main Alliance, and the businesses, hospitals, schools, and faith institutions in Museum District. The Museum Park Super Neighborhood boundaries are Main Street to the west, Interstate 69 to the north, Almeda Road to the east, and Hermann Park to the south.
Establish the Museum District as a top cultural destination with a strong sense of neighborhood identity.
Strategically collaborate with all entities in Museum Park to develop a beautiful and recognizable premier cultural, educational, and mixed-use district that is the most pedestrian-friendly district in Houston.
Further education through beneficial use of public lands and natural resources in collaboration with the City, State, and cultural institutions.
Improve health and health education through development of a measurably transformed and healthier urban environment using infrastructure and landscaping, and a living laboratory that can be easily implemented in other settings.
Promote safety, security, and well-being within the neighborhood.
Two master plans are important to the future of Museum Park. These documents provide a foundation for the workplan of the Museum Park Super Neighborhood Council.
The Museum Park Livable Centers Study is critical to the creation of a safe, convenient, and desirable community. From June 2015 to June 2016 a team of planning and design consultants worked with the Museum Park community to develop a conceptual plan and implementation recommendations. (Report: Museum Park Livable Centers Study 63MB.)
The study of the Caroline Street Promenade led to a report that sets forth a conceptual plan for pedestrian improvements to the right-of-way along Caroline Street in Museum Park. (Report: Concept Plan Report, Caroline Street Promenade 31.8MB.)
