Planning and Development

​”​Although an effective advocate for downtown, Central Houston is not just that. I have been part of several committees and focus groups organized by Central Houston for the purpose of vetting ideas, spurring creativity, sharing information and creating a plan for solving issues confronting the greater Houston area. Central Houston acts as a catalyst to further proponents of change in areas such as regional transportation, quality of life and culture.”​

– Kurt D. Nondorf, Partner, Houston Office, Jackson Walker LLP
