Current Green Space on Post Oak and Richmond

Below is the green space that can be seen around the Richmond and Post Oak areas as of June 2014. Let’s keep it this way or better! If rail were to come to this area, this would all go away—increasing congestion and flooding, destroying trees and green space.

Richmond’s idea without rail: walkable, oak tree lined street

WHERE ARE THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF TAXPAYERS DOLLARS GOING??

WHY HAS METRO TAKEN AWAY BUS LINES??

The taxpayers voted in the 2003 referendum for Westpark as part of a larger transportation package, which included light rail lines on the North, East, Southeast and Inner Katy, as well as 50% increased bus service, bus rapid transit and commuter rail on 90A. It is 6 1/2 yrs. later and none of this has been completed.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) has illegally decided to take Richmond Avenue against the will of the taxpayers who voted for a light rail line on Westpark.
