  1. Regarding the transit recommendations map on page 29 of the Dec. 18, 2014 presentation, is there a map legend to help me better understand the transit recommendations?

  2. Hello,

    I commute to work nearly daily, year-round, from Katy through Barker Reservoir to the Energy Corridor on Eldridge. The primary reason I choose to live where I do is to have cycling access to work where I don’t have to worry about getting hit by cars while riding. Further, I love to take advantage of the fantastic green space offered by the Barker Reservoir with my family.

    Barker Reservoir in its current state is an amazing asset to have in West Houston. It certainly has a “Central Park” feel as Houston has exploded around it. I see countless people running, walking, fishing, cycling and more at all times of the year in Barker Reservoir – it is an oasis in the chaos of streets, traffic and urban sprawl.

    I recognize that the study being performed is trying to balance various modes of commuting but in respect for all the people who currently use the trail system in the park as well as the generations yet to come, I feel obligated to voice a preference to NOT construct additional roads through George Bush Park / Barker Reservoir as tempting as it may be from a traffic perspective.

    The park is a unique and wonderful resource and offers to be that way for decades to come. Traffic patterns and centers of industry are fickle and change frequently, often radically. Once roads, traffic lights, etc. are put into the park, they will stay there forever, regardless of how the city expands or where job centers move. Further, there is a sustained upkeep cost forever imposed on taxpayers to maintain these additional roads.

    I humbly plea that if any changes are made to the park / reservoir, that they instead be additional access points for cyclists, runners, etc. Promote a healthier Houston by way of commuting via bike, rather than compound the problem by just encouraging more driving. Large employers like ConocoPhillips, BP and more reward employees by finding alternative modes of commuting – but people won’t cycle to work if the roads are as hazardous as they are now in Houston. A trick to reducing car traffic is to provide alternative options and other cities around the world have already taken this on in spades.

    Thank you,

  3. Good Afternoon,

    I live near Highland Knolls and I am concerned regarding the proposed extension of the road through George Bush Park. Any extension would damage the value of all of the park space currently at the intersection of Highland Knolls and Fry Roads. The resulting major thoroughfare would cause great harm to the community, in my opinion.

    In addition, Highland Knolls west of Westgreen is a residential street. Currently street parking is allowed for these residents. This is already a major issue for traffic going west. It effectively reduces the road to one lane both ways between Westgreen and Mason. The associated traffic increase that would come from an extension would surely make this an even greater issue for residents and drivers.

    Please reconsider.
