  1. Heights bike trail is getting an extension on the western end. Looks like this will go under TC Jester and then connect to the sidewalk there.
  2. The main reason given is that this can be really difficult for some folks to pay, leaving them in a debtor's prison cycle. In general I think this is in line with the trend towards eliminating cash bail and reducing convictions for low level offences that a lot of Harris County judges are pushing for.
  3. Sounds like they are worried their $$ is drying up and lashing out "Many of the Democratic judges Crime Stoppers is slamming have cut into the organization’s revenue by curbing a common practice requiring many people sentenced to probation to pay a $50 fee that goes to Crime Stoppers. The nonprofit’s revenue from those fees has fallen by half since Democrats swept the county’s judicial races in 2018." "By 2021, Crime Stoppers was getting 80 percent less from the courts than it had in 2014 — a drop of about $500,000, to less than $122,000, according to county records." https://www.nytimes.com/2022/04/21/us/politics/crime-stoppers-houston.html https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/texas/article/Crime-Stoppers-chapters-in-Texas-are-stockpiling-17116923.php https://www.texasstandard.org/stories/traditionally-nonpartisan-crime-stoppers-houston-has-a-new-target-democratic-judges/
  4. Metro stop = more density :)
  5. That’s cool, something different for the area.
  6. This is great — lots of actual information instead of conjecture. It does show the hard work being taken by txdot and the city to make this project successful. A few things I thought were particularly relevant: - txdot is committing to putting a concrete cap on the highways in eado and the areas in midtown. So yeah there isn’t a park on them yet but they WILL be covered. No more of this ‘it’s going to be a trench’ nonsense. - I found their comments about rejoining some streets in near northside to be really interesting, this was the first time I saw those ideas. - the detention ponds and new trails along the white oak were also news to me.
  7. Hear me out -- ground floor car wash in all apartment complexes. Leave more room for the hot chicken restaurants
  8. Yeah if you park in any of the lots along the BBP there is glass everywhere. Also over by Spotts park and Cleveland park. Just don't leave anything out in the open in your car and you'll be fine.
  9. Thanks for the clarification! I see your point about the left entering exits (which I in general don't like). In the situation you describe above, I would imagine instead people would continue on i10 until the exit to Jensen st that is after 45 turns south (similar in location to the exit to Jensen today). That would give a lot more time to merge over. https://www.txdot.gov/content/dam/project-sites/nhhip/docs/segment-3-pm4-exhibit-01-overall.pdf
  10. I'm not sure I follow this concern with Runnels. The schematics I see show Runnels being made a dead end at the railroad, is this not the current plan? https://www.txdot.gov/content/dam/project-sites/nhhip/docs/segment-3-pm4-exhibit-01-overall.pdf
  11. Will it be open permanently soon?
  12. From the e-brochure on the website listed above https://7afd0778.flowpaper.com/FactsHighlightsPapersENGLISHclickable/#page=12
  13. The teal and brick made me think this was 2301 Commerce for a second. Its even a similar shape.
