LIVE, Work, and Play: Facilitating Housing for Livable Centers 

H-GAC’s Livable Centers Program seeks to create places where people can Live, Work, and Play.

This workshop will focus on the “Live” component—providing a range of housing choices where residents can make many of their daily trips on foot, by bicycle or transit.

You’ll gain insight on how to incorporate housing into planning strategies and learn about the tools available in our region to help promote successful housing development. You’ll also have a chance to join in a conversation with an expert panel to see what it takes to make a housing development “pencil,” as well as answer questions you have about localized housing strategies in your community.

But the most important participant in this interactive workshop is you! So, plan to join us and register, today! 

Check-in and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m., and the program begins at 9 a.m.

Approved by the Houston Section of the American Planning Association for 4 Continuing Maintenance (CM) AICP credits.
