Considering how other projects/proposals have gone through Planning ect. with overwhelming positive feedback, I thought it was really weird how this specific project fell through when it seemed on the outset to be a slam dunk: take expensive infrastructure off the city's books, increase pedestrian safety, local homeowners get less traffic on their neighborhood streets. Considering how much it usually takes to get a city initiative cancelled in Houston, the opposition seemed very disproportionate to the response. Honestly kinda glad to know it was a cluster from the start, because it gives me more confidence in the current and upcoming city initiatives that I know are being done correctly. This project would have been a disaster, amazing how fast things can pass without public input when they benefit very wealthy homeowners in a two block radius. You don't think that new park would have been more expensive to maintain than a basic overpass that survived 60 years without maintenance btw? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
