2015 Reimagining Cities Conference - Keynote Speaker U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro
The Honorable Julián Castro, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and former San Antonio mayor, will deliver the keynote address Sept. 9, 2015 at the LBJ School of Public Affair’s 2015 Reimagining Cities Conference. The event is free and open to the public but registration is required.
Secretary Castro’s keynote address will serve to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the department of Housing and Urban Development as a Cabinet-level agency by President Lyndon Johnson in 1965.
This year’s Reimagining Cities Conference will focus on forward thinking approaches to creating affordable housing and strong, sustainable neighborhoods; access to good jobs and schools; and innovative urban planning – issues that are of paramount importance not only in Austin, but across Texas and the country.
