CAN to host policy forum on sustainable growth in Austin region on November 8, 2013

November 8, 2013
CAN Policy Forum Today’s Choices, Tomorrow’s Future: Growing into the region we want to be 

The Austin region will continue to grow, but will our growth be sustainable? Will opportunity be shared, or will economic segregation deepen, providing opportunity to some, while leaving others behind? What solutions will help us grow into the region we want to be?

Join community members and leaders for an important discussion on the future of our community.
