The Transition Houston October meeting will be held on the first Monday instead of the first Tuesday to avoid conflict with the Houston Night Out. Night Out seems to be a very transitiony event, that we feel we should support.
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 are fortunate to have Jay Blazek Crossley, of Houston Tomorrow (and Sky Farm), speak to us about the upcoming Metro transit funding referendum. As you may know, the referendum--to be voted on during the general election--will determine what sort of transit system Houston has in the future. Jay will also present the results of the recent bike and pedestrian count, coordinated by Houston Tomorrow. This may be the first public venue where those results are shared!
We will also be talking about the proposed Operating Manual for Transition Houston, our written constitution.
At 8:30 we will conclude the Meeting and start the meeting, as we enjoy conversation and community along with some refreshments.
There is bicycle parking at the Green Building Resource Center. Also car parking.
