The findings from a “Regional Commuter Rail Connectivity Study” were presented at the Livable Houston Initiative meeting on Wednesday, June 25, 2008 at the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC). The study has been submitted to H-GAC for consideration. This important study will have a profound effect on the the future of the Houston region.
This study was presented by Sam Lott of Kimley-Horn & Assoc, the project consultants. Lott described the philosophies driving the study and the methodology for choosing the Baseline System Plan. There was also an open session for questions and comments.
On Friday, June 27, the study was presented to H-GAC’s Transportation Policy Council to be approved for an upcoming public comment event about the plan. That event was July 1.
