Get thee to the City Summit
Thursday, December 1, 2016 by Nina Hernandez
The Austin Monitor and Glasshouse Policy invite state and local leaders to the third annual City Summit, a two-day policy extravaganza that runs Dec. 2-3 at Google Fiber Space, 201 Colorado St. The two days feature panels on broadband access in rural areas, the future of ride-sharing and our ever-controversial public school finance system. One of many highlights: On Saturday, City Council Member Don Zimmerman will cross wits with Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhart on annexation and land acquisition policies, which is sure to be a treat. Wonks should also note the talk on the development of unzoned land in the city, which will continue to cause many heated battles in the years to come. More information and a detailed schedule are available here.
