KUT, LBJ School, Monitor plan CitySummit
The Monitor is again joining forces with our reporting partners at KUT and the LBJ School of Public Affairs to produce a half-day seminar designed to look at key issues facing the City of Austin as it moves into the post-10-1 world. It’s set for Dec. 5 at UT’s Thompson Center. The topics for the day will be mobility, planning and revenues (read: how we pay for it all), each covered by its own panel. Attendees can expect to come away with a better understanding of the issues and some ideas about how to deliver on impact. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The event is set to conclude at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15-$20. Sign-up is here. Panelists for the three sessions will be announced Nov. 10.
