The Houston - Galveston Area Council Transportation Policy Council will host a public hearing to discuss citizen priorities for the use of discretionary funds in the 2011-2014 Transportation Improvement Program on March 25, 2011 at 8:45am at the H-GAC building in the 2nd Floor Conference room at 3555 Timmons.

The Technical Advisory Committee will meet Wednesday, March 16, 2011 to discuss, amongst other things, a proposal to pursue “option 4” for allocating the remaining funding, as well as a H-GAC staff report on “the TIP Call for Projects.”

Houston Tomorrow has published a primer on the TIP funding issue.

You,The authorities of this area of the world , will as a quality environment provider, maintain and upkeep the paved trails in and around the Houston area.
  You will do so for the advancement and maintainence of the greater public good.
  The human spirit health benifits of walking, biking,or skating one of the public trails , can not be put into dollars and cents.
  To not do so , will be showing a side of “you & us” that is to be avoided.

  You and we can provide such avenues of goodness for the people of this great city and the world to enjoy.

  Maintain our paved exercise/nature trails.

Thank You

The Transportation Policy Counci (TPC) meeting at 8:45 is a workshop for TPC and Technical Advisory Committee members, not a “public hearing”.  The public may attend, but this is not a “hearing” as many readers may interpret this word.  The purpose of the workshop is to continue the discussion begun at the Febuary meeting of the Policy Council concerning the use of highway funds for traditionall mobility projects; as additional funding for transit, bicycle and pedestrian projects; air quality and planning projects.  The Technical Advisory Committee represents a broad crossection of local governments, transportation agencies and other transportation interests in our region.  As a workshop, no action will be taken by the Policy Council.  However, the workshop will provide important background for the TPC meeting following the workshop.  The public will be afforded an opportunity to make comment at the following TPC meeting which will begin at 9:30 a.m.
