East Aldine’s new Town Center was the site of a “Civic Saturday” workshop last Saturday. Hundreds turned out to talk with Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, heads of other county departments, and civic leaders.
Judge Hidalgo has planned a series of 7 of these meetings, each with a specific topic, throughout the county. She wants citizen participation in county government, and wants to hear ideas to help shape the county’s future.
These events are day-long, where constituents bring their concerns, ideas and collaborate with leaders who put change in motion. The goal is to learn from and communicate with the community.
Meetings have been planned on the following subjects:
— Health & Environment
— Transportation, Infrastructure & Safety
— Resilience & Flood Mitigation
— Children & Early Education
— Economic Opportunity & Housing
— Criminal Justice
— Resilience & Flood Mitigation (repeat)
