Forum on Urban Planning

on Mon, 09/02/2013 - 23:08

Tarrant County will be hosting a forum on Ubran Planning after the SLEC meeting this Saturday.

Saturday, Sept 7th @ 7pm

You can view the facebook event to learn more.


The Tarrant County LP in conjunction with the Texas LP will present the next Liberty Speakers Series entitled Urban Planning - What Could Go Wrong? The panel is from 7 to 8:30, with a social hour before from 6 to 7.

The event will present a liberty-focused approach to urban planning, including analyses of the process (Is it democratic?), the goals (Who decides? Are there unforeseen consequences?) and the methods (Who benefits? Who doesn’t?). After providing concrete examples in Dallas, Houston, and Austin, special emphasis will be given to successful paths for activists to take and resources to achieve liberty-promoting results.

The participants include:

Barry Klein who is president of the Houston Property Rights Association which was organized in 1992. Barry has played a role in helping property rights activists in a dozen jurisdictions around the U.S. defeat zoning proposals. He has helped organize several petition drives and follow-up efforts to bring proposals before the Houston electorate, and is currently advising activists in 10 Texas cities who have completed or are contemplating petition drives for charter amendments.

Randy Dunning who has been involved in Texas politics since 1988. In 2002, Randy was elected to the Garland City Council and reelected to that position in 2005. During his tenure on Council Randy was elected Mayor Pro Tem as well as being appointed Chairman of two Council Subcommittees. In 2011 Randy was invited to Iowa to train the leadership team of Strong America Now in door to door, retail politics. 

John Basham, President of Texans for Government Transparency and activist with Trinity River Vision. He is professionally employed as a chief meteorologist for the Storm Spotter Project.

Vince May who has been interested in transportation, the movement of people and goods, since before he was first licensed to drive. Now that state organs have focused on transportation as a means of controlling and taxing people, his interest has only grown.
