Plenary: Texas Target Communities—Planning with Purpose, Principles, and Passion
Tue. 8:30 to 10:00 a.m., Interlocken A/B
This plenary session will feature the Texas Target Communities program, which involves university faculty and students who work together with local government officials and community stakeholders to design more just, equitable, and sustainable communities. For 25 years this program has been helping diverse communities—in rural and urban settings across Texas—develop natural hazard mitigation plans and advance other initiatives. This session will highlight the principles that undergird this program and will focus on two communities that have successfully completed the mitigation planning process.
