A National Think Tank Based in Houston
The Center for Opportunity Urbanism is a stand-alone think tank, based in Houston. Headquartering this effort in Houston reflects the region’s emergence as arguably the primary exemplar of this new urban model. But this is not a Houston-centric think tank; its view and reach is national. It is directed both by its board and its executive director, who will remain based in Southern California, with input from fellows and a board of advisors. The Center is run primarily by Joel Kotkin, with assistance of a part-time office manager and later additions in public/media relations, fund raising, and lobbying. Our team consists of several noted experts in the field of urban growth, including our first fellows, Wendell Cox, Tory Gattis and Anne Snyder.
