Texas’ largest cities are home to a wide range of diverse and culturally distinct communities. A nation-wide trend towards urban living combined with state-wide population growth has increased development pressure in urban neighborhoods, jeopardizing housing, local economies, urban form, cultural traditions, and way of life for some of these unique communities. A number of initiatives are underway throughout Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio to preserve and support vulnerable, cultural communities and their housing affordability, economic independence, cultural distinctions, and architecture. This panel discussion will explore five of these efforts, at all stages of implementation, and includes nonprofit, consultant, and municipal perspectives. Attendees will gather takeaways applicable to communities facing a variety of challenges related to growth and will have the opportunity to discuss the issue with representatives from the public, nonprofit, and private sectors.
