Recent Events

 

Last month, the District K office hosted its annual District K Community Town Hall Meeting (formerly the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) meeting) at The Fountain Life Center.

 

This year's community meeting started with a featured memoriam presentation in honor of Council Member Green. The District K meeting continued with a powerpoint presentation that highlighted all the various District K initiatives by Council Member Green entitled, A Year in Review.

 

Mayor Turner was the keynote presenter, along with Carol Haddock, the new Houston Public Works Director. The Mayor and Director Haddock touch based on post-Harvey recovery updates and highlighted recently completed projects, projects underway, and projects programmed for next year. Following their respective presentations, the community meeting departed into breakout groups among the various City departments and other interagency organizations in attendance.
