About Houston's Super Neighborhoods

The super neighborhood concept was launched on June 7, 1999. Eighty-eight super neighborhoods were defined to encourage neighborhood-oriented problem-solving within manageable areas. The boundaries of each super neighborhood were based on major physical features (such as bayous) and infrastructure (freeways). These small, contiguous communities are likely to share a common history or identity.

How do "super neighborhoods" differ from "neighborhood associations" or "civic clubs"?
Neighborhood Associations and Civic Clubs represent the residents in an area. Some neighborhoods have established a neighborhood association and some have not. Super Neighborhood Councils represent all the people, businesses, and institutions in a defined area. These councils cover the entire city. In contrast, Super Neighborhoods are established through a process managed by the mayor's office to gather diverse stakeholder representation, create an organizational structure, and draft bylaws. Super Neighborhoods may include several neighborhood associations or civic clubs.
