Continuing the conversation on more equitable, resilient and sustainable cities, the last session in our 3-part series will cover energy, water and environmental quality, and financing across the state. As Texas struggles with warmer temperatures, the state needs to work together to mitigate the environmental issues we are experiencing. For example, water shedding practices in one city could and do affect water levels in other cities. In many instances, higher water levels lead to flooding and runoff and the effects are felt downstream.
Another discussion we hear a lot about is “the grid” and how it gets overloaded. Is there a statewide goal to fix the situation, and how does each region help? As Texas continues to grow in density, it is important to build cities and neighborhoods focusing on water, environmental quality and energy conservation.
So, how do we pay for it? Are there financing options to take our projects to that next level of conservation? The questions and discussion are limitless. Join us October 11 to discuss these topics. As with the other two sessions, we encourage a conversation to share ideas across individuals.
