COH begins Lower Westheimer Corridor Study

Recommended Posts

From Cohen's enewsletterMayor Pro Tem Cohen, the departments of  Public Works and Engineering [https://www.publicworks.houstontx.gov] and

Planning and Development [http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/] held the first meeting with the  Lower Westheimer Corridor Study [http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/transportation/CMP/LowerWestheimer/index.html] Stakeholder Advisory Committee. The city is seeking community based recommendations for Westheimer (from Shepherd to Main) in order to prepare for future improvements.  Lower Westheimer is a distinctive street surrounded by an eclectic neighborhood, diverse businesses, and important architectural buildings. While there are no current plans for the roadway, it merits an advanced level of design sensitivity due to its historic, cultural, and community significance.  A series of public meetings will be announced over the next few months.  Sign up for updates and to learn more about the study » [http://www.houstontx.gov/planning/transportation/CMP/LowerWestheimer/index.html]

Heard from someone who is part of the Study. He understands the Study will involve Westheimer from Shepherd to Smith--yep just a bit of Elgin.

As part of ReBuild Houston, the City is seeking public input for improvements to the Lower Westheimer Corridor due to the unique elements, historical characteristics and pedestrian atmosphere that make Lower Westheimer a special place to work, live, and visit. At the first public meeting, citizens will be asked to weigh in on existing issues, opportunities for improvement, mobility priorities and share their vision for the development of the Lower Westheimer streetscape. 



Monday, June 6, 2016

6 p.m. 

St. Stephen's Episcopal School

School gymnasium

1800 Sul Ross Street

(parking entrance off Woodside, limited spaces available)



The following public meeting will solicit community input on corridor design alternatives. Results from the study will be incorporated into the final recommendations and design concept for improving the street. The recommended design will be incorporated into the current capital improvement project along Elgin/Westheimer Road between Bagby Street and Montrose Boulevard. 



Please attend the upcoming public meeting to share your suggestions and vision of development for the Lower Westheimer Corridor. Visit LowerWestheimerStudy.org <http://LowerWestheimerStudy.org>  for details.

This meets tonite. 

In another thread, I posted the variance requested at 215 Westheimer, the former Legacy location. When the commissioners met, they brought up the Lower Westheimer Study and delayed consideration of that variance until after this meeting tonite. Will be interesting to hear everyone's input.
