What is the Future of Our Region?
Survey to Inform Creation of Regional Plan for Sustainable Development
In less than 30 years, the Houston-Galveston region is expected to add 3.5 million people. Residents are invited to take a 10-minute survey to see how the region can best prepare for this growth.
The survey questions pertain to four alternative futures: Current Course, Less Time on the Road, Greener Region, and Competitive Workforce. The survey gives respondents the opportunity to share their opinions on what they think about these alternatives and the tradeoffs involved with each.
Responses to this survey will be used to help guide the development of the Regional Plan for Sustainable Development, being drafted by the Houston-Galveston Area Council, along with volunteer partners from local governments, non-profit agencies, and educational and research organizations.
The survey will be available through November 16, and all eligible respondents will be entered in a drawing for one of four $25 Amazon.com gift certificates to be given away each week.
