Kick-Off Meeting

Mayor Sylvester Turner addressing the audience
Residents, community partners, and City of Houston’s department leaders discuss topics of interest during a workshop in Near Northside.

The Kick-Off celebrated Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Complete Communities initiative in Near Northside. The organizations that have created community plans within the last 5 years presented those plans, highlighted vision and goals, and discussed several of the highest priorities.
