Houston, a city rocked by extreme weather events multiple times in recent years, is working on its first-ever climate action plan. The plan, released to the public in April 2020, followed just a few months after the release of the Resilient Houston plan, signaled a new direction for planning in the nation's fourth largest city, and an enduring legacy of Houston Harvey.
Unfortunately, as reported by Michael Coleman, some local stakeholders are disillusioned with the plan's lack of attention to matters of equity, and calling on the city to do more to support residents in traditionally underserved neighborhoods.
