Help Shape the Future of our Region

In less than 30 years, our region is expected to add 3.5 million people. The Houston-Galveston Area Council is currently working with a group of regional partners to create a Regional Plan for Sustainable Development that will look at current and future opportunities to meet the needs of the diverse communities and residents of the region in a manner that doesn’t compromise the needs of future generations. The plan will lay out goals for the region, develop metrics to assess sustainability, analyze regional scenarios, and recommend implementation strategies.

We invite you to take a 10-minute survey about four alternative futures we could pursue: Current Course, Less Time on the Road, Greener Region, and Competitive Workforce. We want to hear what you think about these alternatives and the tradeoffs involved with each of them.

To learn more about the alternatives and make your voice heard,


Survey respondents will be entered in a drawing for one of four $25 gift certificates to be given away each week.

The survey will be available through November 16, 2012.
