Houston residents have a chance to hear about ongoing and upcoming infrastructure improvements in their own areas of town this month.

Through March 25, Houston hosts its annual Capital Improvement Plan meetings in each of the city’s 11 city council districts.



The meetings, attended by city staff, council members and Mayor Sylvester Turner, serve as an overview of public works projects in individual districts that have been completed in the previous year or have been in progress. They also review potential new additions to the five-year Capital Improvement Plan, which is updated annually. Budget constraints and damage from Hurricane Harvey have stalled these types of projects in recent years.



All meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. with the exception of the District G meeting, which begins at 7:00 p.m. District E has two meetings: one for the North section of the district in the Kingwood area and one in the South section of the district in the Clear Lake area.
