City Council Meets Tuesday, July 18,2017

The Fulshear City Council will consider an interlocal agreement between the City and the Houston-Galveston Area Council of Governments (H-GAC) for a Livable Centers study during their regular meeting Tuesday, July 18, 2017.

The Council will meet at the Irene Stern Center, 6920 Katy-Fulshear Road beginning at 7:00 p.m.

 Livable Centers are defined as safe, convenient, and attractive areas where people can live, work, and play with less reliance on their cars. They feature open spaces, such as parks, plazas, and marketplaces that accommodate public gatherings and foster a sense of community.

 H-GAC's Livable Centers Program works with local communities to identify specific recommendations, such as pedestrian and bicycle facilities, that can help facilitate the creation of Livable Centers. Through the study process the local community identifies a vision for the study area. The studies contain an implementation plan to realize this vision. H-GAC’s Livable Centers program has completed studies in urban, suburban, and rural areas throughout the 8-county region.

The Council is also expected to begin discussions on potential provisions to include in an ethics ordinance.For more information, click here.
