University Place Executive Director Appointed to Rebuild HoustonAdvisory Committee
Rebuild Houston is a result of Proposition One, approved by voters on November 2, 2010. The proposition directed that the City’s Charter be amended to provide for the enhancement, improvement and ongoing renewal of Houston’s drainage and streets by creating a dedicated pay‐as‐you‐go fund to help maintain and improve drainage and street infrastructure and plan upgrades to meet future needs.
In August 2013, University Place Executive Director, Kathie Easterly, was appointed by Houston City Council to serve on the Rebuild Houston Advisory Committee for one year, and was reappointed in June 2014 for another two year term. The Committee meets monthly and reports directly to the Mayor. On July 2, 2014, the Rebuild Houston Advisory Committee submitted to the Mayor their feedback and recommendations regarding the various FY 2015-2019 CIP amendments proposed by City Council Members.
The Committee’s mission is to be an independent advisory committee whose role is to advise the City on Rebuild Houston and the project prioritization process. In performing this advisory role, the Committee will:
- Advise the Mayor on PWE project selection, process methodology and recommend changes where appropriate to enhance outcomes.
- Advise the Mayor on ways to more effectively engage super neighborhood, civic, homeowner and business groups to ensure various stakeholders are informed of project priorities and are provided an opportunity for input into the Rebuild Houston program, including monitoring and recommending improvements to community relations activities.
- Provide regular reports to the Transportation, Technology & Infrastructure Committee.
