ENGAGE* LEARN* LEAD: Neighborhood 101 and Tentative Schedule

Our June Neighborhood 101 was an informative seminar discussing City of Houston Municipal Code Chapter 19 and what you need to know if you are considering a home elevation. It’s important for Houstonians to know their risks and how to help ensure we reduce flood risks as we continue to grow as a city.

If you were not able to attend this workshop or the previous workshops (listed below) but would like a copy of the video, please contact our office and we will be sure to share the footage with you.
