Green Projects: Bikeways Program- The Houston Bikeways Program is a partnership among the Public Works & Engineering, Planning & Development, Parks & Recreation and Health & Human Services Departments and often coordinates with METRO, Houston Parks Board, Houston-Galveston Area Council and other partners. The program aims to make Houston a safer, healthier, and more bike-friendly city. Brownsfields Redevelopment Program- The redevelopment of Brownfields benefits the communities in which they are located in many ways. By removing blight and facilitating environmental cleanup, redeveloping Brownfields address environmental, public health, and safety concerns. Redeveloping previously developed sites and reusing existing infrastructure, utilities, and roads allows open space and undeveloped land to be preserved.  Green Building Resource Center- A project of the Department of Public Works and Engineering, offers economical, sustainable building solutions for the public through over 50 educational displays, a library of information, and samples of recycled materials to provide strategies for green building and in-home energy conservation..
