Attendees can expect the following topics to be covered: Community Development around Texas, a report on the Barrio Neighborhood Plan, the Amarillo Demographic Report and Amarillo Assessment of Fair Housing.
Also on the agenda is the LANWT Community Revitalization Project and breakout sessions on Housing and Environmental Justice and Community Development.
