The process is intended to be intensely participant driven, BUT we need people to attend to be heard. Eight (8) architecture students are working with a diverse Vision Advisory Committee and need YOUR participation to build the integrity of a long range, collaborative vision for Houston.

This visioning effort is intended to develop a broader discussion of how downtown renovation and connectivity in Houston can better realize its important potential for placemaking, heritage tourism, transit, housing, 'city repair', and related economic development.

Since Spring 2007, the academic collaboration between MU Extension and the Drury Center for Community Studies has assisted 28 communities with 30 visioning projects resulting in 5 DREAM Initiative communities and economic activity in the projected range of 20-30 million dollars. For each community this represents a first step along a path toward revitalization, entrepreneurship, economic development and overall sustainability.

Session topic:

Public dialogue of Precedent Research and mini-workshops concerning the issues & considerations related to the long range vision for Houston, focusing on revitalization of the center city area and linkage to Highway 63 and other community assets.
