The City of Houston will host its first meeting for the Complete Communities initiative, and the public is invited to attend.

The new initiative was started by Mayor Sylvester Turner earlier this year to strengthen Houston’s under-resourced neighborhoods by giving residents from the selected areas a platform to share their vision for their community.

At the meetings, residents will meet with Mayor Turner, City of Houston departments, community representatives and partnering agencies to collaborate on initiatives to develop solutions for enhancing area homes, businesses and shared spaces, and to improve streets, sidewalks and transit options.

The first Complete Communities meetings will take place in five pilot neighborhoods – Acres Home, Gulton, Second Ward, Third Ward and Near Northside. The pilot areas will serve as the blueprint for the Complete Communities initiative to help the city develop solutions that are transferable to other communities across the city.

Mayor Turner will give welcoming remarks when the program kicks off with the Acres Home community on October 18.
