fastforward 2010 - Session III: The New Regionalism

Moderator Jon Roberts (TIP Strategies, Inc.) led the distinguished panel - Tom Mason (LCRA), Charles Heimsath (Capitol Market Research), Todd Hemingson (Capital Metro), Sean Compton (Congress for the New Urbanism), Jesus Garza (Seton Family of Hospitals), and Bill Glavin (TxDOT) - in an interesting look at regional planning issues that confront Central Texas governments, agencies, businesses, and non-profits as all emerge from the economic recession.
