HPRA hosts Randal O'Toole today

Here are details of today's Houston Property Rights Association lunchtime meeting:

On Friday, April 20, the members and guests of the Houston Property Rights Association will assemble to hear Randal O'Toole, a nationally known critic of urban planning and urban rail systems, speak against the idea of Houston adopting a General Plan which is currently being drawn up in Houston city hall.

Mr. O'Toole's message is that planning brings ruin to much of what is good about city life. He has launched a blog to advance his ambitious agenda for the country:

The Houston city council is moving toward creating a General Plan to impose zoning type planning restrictions on our communities that are likely to increase housing costs, taxes, and traffic congestion. Mr. O'Toole will explain exactly why Houston should not do that.

HPRA meets at noon at the Courtyard restaurant, 1885 St. James Place. Cost is $20 and includes lunch. If you attend, please let us know how it went. It sounds very interesting!
