The Transition Houston November meeting will be held on the first Monday instead of the first Tuesday to avoid conflict with Election Day. This is a meeting you won't want to miss!
Transition Houston meets in several venues for our monthly meetings. This month we will be meeting at the Green Building Resource Center/Code Enforcement Building, 1002 Washington Ave. (near the Amtrak station), in the upstairs conference room. The Green Building Resource Center is a fantastic place to learn about green building technologies, with lots of visual and hands-on displays of materials and systems ranging from the simple but effective to the advanced and highly efficient.
We have a very special program planned around the theme of "Rail Transportation and Travel." Two experts will talk about current rail options in the Houston region (and beyond) and potential for improvements including high-speed rail:
Maureen Crocker, Executive Director of the Gulf Coast Rail District
Judge Bob Eckels, President - High Speed Rail, Texas Central Railway
We will also be voting on the proposed Transition Houston "Operating Manual," which will establish who we are and how we do things.
Our program ends at 8:30, at which time we break for our conversation, community, and refreshments tradition.
There is bicycle parking at the Green Building Resource Center (although many bicyclists bring their bikes inside for meetings). Also car parking.
