Obviously, LOTS of people are thinking and talking about METRO’s Univiersities light rail line. We sure are!
You need to know about two important meetings this week. METRO is holding “scoping” meetings, which are our official opportunity to tell METRO where we want the rail to go:
- Tuesday, June 27th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Third Ward Multi-Service Center, 3611 Ennis, Houston, Texas 77004, and
- Thursday, June 29th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at the Holiday Inn Select, 2712 Southwest Freeway, Houston, Texas, 77098.
Expect an informal workshop, where you can view maps and displays on your own and communicate one-on-one with METRO staff. The most important thing for you to do at the meeting is is submit your comments. You can write them down on a comment card, or say them to one of the official stenographers.
Tell them you want rail access down Richmond Avenue, and tell them where you want it to go. Be specific: name all the places you want to go and the locations you want rail to serve.
Even if you can’t make it to one of these meetings, you still need to tell METRO where you think the University line should go. Let them know you support the project and make your ideas part of the official project record. You can submit your comments three more ways:
- By web form: Submit MetroSolutions inquiry
By email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or
By snail mail: Attn: Rhonda Boyer, METRO, PO BOX 61429, Houston, Texas 77208-1429.
The deadline for submitting comments is July 14, 2006 for the scoping phase. If this deadline is extended we’ll let you know.
