City of Houston Planning and Development Department to host an interactive public meeting focused on improving mobility, infrastructure and public transit in Southeast Houston

HOUSTON – The City of Houston Planning and Development Department, Council Member Dwight Boykins and Council Member Robert Gallegos announce two interactive Southeast Houston Mobility Plan public meetings for the first week of February to receive draft recommendations from the southeast community.

The meetings will give residents of Southeast Houston two exciting opportunities to participate in an interactive transportation workshop and improve how they get to work, school and other key destinations. The first meeting is scheduled for Wed., Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Sunnyside Multi-Service Center. The second meeting is scheduled for Sat., Feb. 9 at 9:30 a.m. at the Charlton Community Center.

The Southeast Houston Mobility Plan will be used to guide the City of Houston’s short, mid and long-term multimodal mobility planning efforts. The plan will also identify implementation projects that will improve mobility and access in the Southeast Houston Sub-Area.

“We encourage all residents of the Southeast Houston community to attend one of the meetings to share their thoughts on how to improve mobility in their neighborhoods,” said Sharon Moses-Burnside, Transportation Planning Division Manager. “After hearing from the community in the first round of meetings, we have designed an innovative transportation plan and can’t wait to receive feedback on the draft recommendations.” 

The Southeast Houston Mobility Plan is inclusive of vehicular, transit, pedestrian, bicycle and freight in the area bounded by Interstate 610 to the north, State Highway 288 to the west, Sam Houston Toll Road to the south, and Interstate 45 and Galveston Road to the east. Residents are given an opportunity to voice their concerns regarding existing transportation and mobility conditions, infrastructure and development within the area.
