Houston is growing and changing like few places in the nation. But is it growing in a way that the community can support over the long haul?

The Shell Center for Sustainability at Rice University is poised to release its 3rd report on Houston Sustainability Performance this week.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we learn what this new report has to say about how the city of Houston is growing socially, economically, and environmentally, and we consider its implications for all of us in Greater Houston.

We also welcome your examples of things you’d like to see happen to make our community all the more livable.

Also: cycling is increasing in Houston, but are we a bicycle-friendly city? Could more of us get where we need to go on a bike, rather than in a car? We talk it over.

Plus: why a Houston area non-profit that provides educational, economic, and social services has decided to get into the business of filmmaking…and a local restaurant chain is building its business with a childhood staple dominating the menu.

Join the conversation on Houston Matters today at noon on KUHF 88.7 FM. To participate on air, call 713-440-8870. Or e-mail questions and comments to talk@houstonmatters.org.
