Houston and zoning aren't often used in the same sentence. But then, Hurricane Katrina changed a lot of things. Yesterday, in Americ a's largest city without zoning regulations, officials announced a "zoning plan" for Reliant City. That's the name given to the Reliant Park Complex that now hosts 24,900 "residents" in the wake of the disaster. The largest evacuation shelter in U.S. history even has its own ZIP code: 77230.
According to D omeBlog , which is covering the evacuees at the Reliant Astrodome and George Brown Convention Center, the plan is to set up typical neighborhood amenities such banking, medical and transit centers, as well as a Town Square Park, which will include a playground, sports field and laundry facilities.
Who knows what could happen in the city at large as the result of this newfangled idea being introduced within its boundaries?
