Houston Transit Initiative Needs Your Help

By | July 19, 2014

METRO DiagramOur friends at Houston Tomorrow have an important petition circulating to demand that the City follow through on the 2003 vote to build a five line high quality transit system. From their website:

Houston is building the best modern light rail system in the nation in terms of ridership per mile. Upon completion, the Uptown and University lines will join the Main Street Line as the most successful light rail lines in the nation. The delays on completing this initial system also are delaying the further deployment of high quality transit throughout the region.

You can read more and sign the petition here.

We also encourage you to attend the City of Houston Community Meeting on the Plans for the Post Oak Corridor. This plan could greatly reduce traffic congestion to the west by implementing a rapid transit line to Uptown. The meeting will take place at 6pm on Monday, July 21st, in Ballroom C at the Houston Hilton Post Oak Hotel (2001 Post Oak Blvd)

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
