Barry Klein

October 2000

Barry Klein, one of the most respected property rights activists in the nation, is considered the primary figure in keeping zoning out of Houston, Texas. Mr. Klein thinks that one of the reasons that the Houston Property Rights Association is so effective is that it meets weekly, with a different featured speaker at every meeting. Mr. Klein sees to it that each meeting is followed up with a summary of the important information given by the speaker. He keeps a stream of annotated current articles flowing to the members and shares information about zoning developments with leaders and activists throughout the country. During 2000, the Houston Property Rights Association mobilized the property owners in Norhill, a north Houston neighborhood, to the threat posed by a proposed historic district for the area, which, however, passed the City Council in June.
