Registration is now open!
Organized in a partnership between CAMPO and the Houston and Central Sections of the American Planning Association – Texas Chapter, the 2nd Biennial of the Texas Big Six Workshop is themed “Make No Small Plans.” Each planning director from Texas’ six largest cities (Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio) will be asked to discuss the “game changers” in their cities and regions that will improve or enhance that area’s transportation, housing, economic development, environment, public health, and culture. Each director will be asked how each of these planning areas will impact equity and resiliency by outlining a “top six” list associated with each of the big six subject areas. The event’s keynote speaker is Steve Cover, the Director of the Department of Community Planning, Housing, and Development in Arlington County, Virginia.
