Sugar Land Land Use Forum speakers announced

Dr. Stephen Klineberg and Mitchell Silver, AICP, will be the guest speakers for the first Land Use Forum session — A Changing City: Demographics and the Marketplace — scheduled for Jan. 15.

The Land Use Forum will be held at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Boulevard Drive, starting at 6 p.m.

The session will focus on shifting U.S., regional and local demographics and how preferences in working, living and leisure are changing from generation to generation.  The presentations will highlight areas important to the near- and long-term future of Sugar Land and will include community roundtable discussions and opportunities to provide input.

Klineberg is a sociology professor at Rice University and co-director of the Kinder Institute for Urban Research.  Silver is the director of planning for the City of Raleigh, NC, and the immediate past president of the American Planning Association.

The Land Use Forum is a six-part speakers’ series highlighting land-use topics such as housing choices, development of activity centers and redevelopment of aging commercial areas in Sugar Land.

The series is open to the public and will include discussions important to the City’s ongoing efforts to update its Land Use Plan, a document that provides policy guidance and identifies future efforts necessary to accomplish the City’s land use goals and objectives.

Those who can’t attend the Land Use Forum sessions may watch on a live broadcast on SLTV 16 or online at www.sugarlandtx.gov/landuseplan.
