Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership
Proposed Major Thoroughfare Plan Amendment: Ellington Road
News Release
Friday, September 07, 2018

Houston - Council Member Dave Martin would like to make Clear Lake residents aware the City of Houston's proposal to add Ellington Road, a major thoroughfare, between Old Galveston Road and Interstate 45 to the City's Major Thoroughfare and Freeway Plan (MTFP)

The MTFP identifies right-of-way needs and proposes roadway alignments within the city limits of Houston and its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). It is important to note, the MTFP does not initiate the timing of right-of-way acquisition or construction activities related to the roadways, and design and construction will not occur immediately if passed. Ellington Road between Space Center Boulevard and Old Galveston Road was added to the MTFP in 2003.

Property owners abutting the proposed road alignment will receive written notification of the amendment process early next week. Details including an online comment form will be available on the Planning Department website on Monday, September 10, 2018.

Information on the proposed amendment will also be available for public review at a town hall meeting hosted by Council Member Dave Martin to be held on Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 at Space Center Houston, 1601 East NASA Parkway, Houston, Texas, 77058. Sharon Moses Burnside with the Planning and Development Department will make a short presentation and will be available to answer questions and take comments before and after the meeting.

Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposal Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. in the City Hall Annex Chambers, Public Level, 900 Bagby Street, Houston, Texas, 77002

After considering information provided by property owners, the public, City staff and other government agencies concerned about transportation in our region, the Houston Planning Commission will vote on the proposed amendment at their regularly scheduled meeting on November 8, 2018. If approved, the proposal will be forwarded to City Council for consideration by the end of the year.
