You’re Invited: Blueprint Houston Leaders’ Conference
What Are the Best Approaches to Planning Houston’s Future?
Saturday, November 20th, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

At the Citizens’ Congress in 2003, a thousand plus community leaders approved 29 goals that provide direction for planning Houston’s future. The question now is how do we plan to get there from where we are today. If you are a community leader who would like to build support for an effecting planning process, we invite you to attend this conference! We will review the state of planning in Houston and four other cities and discuss the challenges and opportunities of planning approaches for Houston. Please plan to attend the Leaders’ Conference!

Facilitators Needed!
Volunteer facilitators are needed to lead small group discussions at the Leaders’ Conference on November 20th! Your job will be to engage 8 community leaders in a conversation about opportunities and challenges about planning Houston’s future. Please sign up!
