The City of Houston Inner West Loop Mobility Study is the first of a new wave of studies conducted by COH Planning and Public Works staff to “to identify short, medium and long range projects intended to promote better mobility, and to consider and develop a multi modal classification for streets within the study area.” Houston Tomorrow and other members of the Houston Coalition for Complete Streets believe that this study includes some very important first steps toward safe streets for all users and for improving Houstonians’ access to jobs, shopping, schools, and all the other elements of the good life.
Public Comment on the study is due this Friday, January 11, 2013 and the majority of Houstonians who support walkable urbanism need to express their support for the good parts of the study and push for the true solutions we need. During this My Houston 2040, we will facilitate each participant submitting their own comments and will attempt to develop some concepts and maps interactively for submission to the City of Houston.
Houston Tomorrow is working on comments and will publish them here as soon as they are ready.
Jay Blazek Crossley is obsessed with the idea of implementing a program modeled after the City of Portland’s Neighborhood Greenways + Bicycle Boulevards program, and is developing comments on how Houston could adapt this approach in the study area.
