On the New Era of Planning in Houston
Jeff Wood shares news of the latest "Talking Headways" podcast, addressing the approval of Houston's new Comprehensive Plan earlier this year. Featured on the podcast is Jay Crossley of Houston Tomorrow and Streetsblog Texas, who talks about how "[Plan Houston] works to the city’s advantage, whether locals oppose changes to neighborhoods as vociferously as people in other cities, and how different departments will now coordinate under Plan Houston."
The podcast also discusses "how the goals of Plan Houston were shaped, what got left out intentionally, what was jammed in at the last minute, and how it may change in the future."
