Swamplot Sponsor: Plan Downtown and Downtown District

Today’s sponsor is Plan Downtown and the Downtown District, seeking your good ideas about Downtown Houston. Thanks for supporting Swamplot!

Have good ideas? Plan Downtown officials want to hear them.

The Houston Downtown Management District and its partner organizations are inviting everyone to participate in public workshops on July 12 at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice, at 909 Texas Ave.

These workshops will continue conversations about how Downtown Houston can better serve its residents, visitors, commuters, the city of Houston, and the region. The feedback gathered at these events will inform Plan Downtown, a 20-year vision plan that will outline recommendations for planning, development, and design within and around Downtown Houston — with the goal of positioning the area for a competitive and enriched future. For more information about Plan Downtown, visit the Plan Downtown website.

If you work in, live in, play in, or occasionally visit Downtown Houston, this is your opportunity to speak your mind and be heard. Four topical planning sessions will explore potential development recommendations for business, transit, attractions, and livability:

  • The Premiere Business Location (11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
  • Houston’s Leading Multi-Modal Center (1:30 to 3 p.m.)
  • Houston’s Greatest Place To Be (3:30 to 5 p.m.)
  • The Standard for Urban Livability (5:30 to 7 p.m.)

Each session will begin with an overview of Plan Downtown, followed by a general outline of the topics covered in the overall strategic plan. With the help of a project lead, participants will delve deeper into the assigned topic through a brief presentation. Hands-on activities, engaging exercises, and interactive stations will serve as mediums to capture ideas, thoughts and feedback.
