District H Council Member Karla Cisneros with community members
Participation in the workshop session
The Kick-Off celebrated Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Complete Communities initiative in Second Ward. Organizations leading planning efforts in the community presented their work at the meeting including Harrisburg TIRZ #23, Greater East End Management District, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, and BakerRipley. Residents, non-profits, businesses, religious institutions, educators and others prioritized proposed projects identified in the existing plans in the community. They were also asked to identify additional projects that would help Second Ward become a Complete Community. The next step is to compile input from the meeting to determine the community’s priorities and begin drafting an Action Plan.
A summary of the proposed projects presented at the meeting is available below.
