On Wednesday, May 28, the public is invited to a "first look" discussion and presentation by Houston-Galveston Area Council staff on The 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a document that identifies the area's transportation needs, goals and policies over the next 25 years.
Transportation planners, engineers, elected officials and the public have been working on the new plan for quite some time to help identify transportation facilities and services needed to support the region's anticipated growth using available resources.
According to an announcement from Houston Tomorrow, "The RTP sets the framework for a balanced and forward thinking system with the identification of major investment strategies supporting roadway improvements, mass transit, bicycle and pedestrian facilities."
The meeting is free to the public as part of Houston Tomorrow's regular Livable Houston Initiative meeting series that take place on the fourth Wednesday of every month. The May 28 meeting will be held at the H-GAC Building, 3555 Timmons Lane, Houston, 2nd Floor, Room C, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Attendees may bring a lunch and are encouraged to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
