H-GAC’s Bringing Back Main Street Roundtable @ Angelton Recreation Center
Oct 24 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

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.

H-GAC’s Regional Recycling Roundtable – Recycling Center Field Trip @ H-GAC, Lobby on the First Floor
Nov 8 @ 8:45 am – 1:00 pm

As landfill space and raw materials become scarcer, recycling of used materials becomes a more cost-effective and sensible option. Periodically the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) hosts workshops to bring new ideas and knowledge to local governments on a wide range of recycling-related topics.

We will travel by bus from H-GAC to two Waste Management Materials Recovery Facilities:

  • Houston Gasmer Drive Single Stream MRF: 4939 Gasmer Drive, Houston, 77035
  • Houston Clay Road Traditional MRF: 9590 Clay Road, Houston, TX 77080

Please arrive at H-GAC by 8:45 a.m. We will meet in the lobby on the first floor. The bus will leave H-GAC promptly at 9:00 a.m. and return by 1:00 p.m. 

Registration is required for this roundtable field trip as space is limited on the bus and at the facilities.
