We’d like to invite you to learn more about how communities throughout the Houston-Galveston region are revitalizing their downtowns at H-GAC’s Bringing Back Main Street: Revitalization Roundtable on Tuesday, October 24.

During this roundtable, the Texas Historical Commission will present ways they support local downtown commercial districts and their small business tenants.

Emily Koller will talk about DowntownTX.org, a new tool from the commission that showcases downtown real estate and acts as a data clearinghouse for Main Street programs, economic development coordinators, chambers of commerce, and others.

Not only will you hear about exciting innovative programs, there will be an opportunity to network with others working to improve our region’s downtowns.
