Meetings for the Annual Operating Budget Capital Improvement Plan
The City of Houston will conduct combined public meetings on the City's FY2012 Annual Operating Budget Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and 2012 Annual Consolidated Plan. Since 1984, the City has held public meetings to obtain citizen input before preparation of the operating budget and capital improvement plan. These meetings provide citizens the opportunity to participate in the budget process by contributing comments and suggestions about needed services and improvements. The 2012 meetings are listed by district below:
District A Council Member Helena Brown
District B Council Member Jerry Davis
District C Council Member Ellen Cohen
District D Council Member Wanda Adams
District E Council Member Mike Sullivan
District F Council Member Al Hoang
District G Council Member Oliver Pennington
District H Council Member Ed Gonzalez
District I Council Member James Rodriguez
District J Council Member Mike Laster
District K Council Member Larry Green
Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) meetings are held every year to inform citizens of upcoming projects scheduled in their respective communities. The meetings afford citizens an opportunity to learn, voice their concerns and address their respective City Council members and City of Houston officials regarding project planning & delivery.
The meetings will also include a short presentation by Housing and Community Development with respect to the update of the Consolidated Plan, and an update on the City's implementation of ReBuild Houston. This year, as a result of the ReBuild Houston initiative, there is now a ten-year plan for street and drainage improvements.
