At that community meeting, Winter & Company (the consulting firm the city hired back in May) presented its findings and gathered feedback from residents included in Phase 1 of the project. The historic districts included in that phase include Houston Heights East, South, and West – along with the Old Sixth Ward.

Steph McDougal is the project manager of the City's Planning and Development Department. She tells Houston Matters producer Maggie Martin how Winter and Company is contributing to the city's project.

The next community workshop with Winter & Company will be held on Dec. 1, 2016, from 6-8 p.m. at the United Way of Greater Houston, located at 50 Waugh Drive.
