Tarrant County Commissioner Gary Fickes will be hosting the 12th Annual Tarrant Transportation Summit on Feb. 10 at the Hurst Conference Center with an emphasis on how investment in transportation and mobility innovation will factor into the region’s growth and economic outlook.

Titled “Dollars and Sense,” the summit will be headlined by Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar, among other speakers. The summit is returning after a one-year hiatus caused by the pandemic.

Fickes is commissioner for Precinct 3, which includes most of northeast Tarrant County, including Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake, Keller and portions of Northeast Fort Worth.

Fickes said Hegar will bring an important statewide economic perspective to the summit and, according to the event’s website, other speakers appearing will touch on topics such as the transformation of Texas’ transit systems and the outlook for transportation in the North Texas region.

According to Fickes, tickets for the summit—which will include lunch—will cost $75 per person, and opportunities for table sponsorships are still available by contacting the commissioner’s office at 817-248-6295.
