Attend the Acres Home Complete Communities & Mobility Study Meeting on Tuesday, June 7

Acres Home, we've heard your concerns about walkability, safety, and connectivity. The City of Houston Planning and Development Department is moving forward to implement the Acres Home Complete Communities Action Plan goal to initiate a mobility study in the Acres Home community. Help develop the plan for safer streets, bike lanes, sidewalks, and bus stops.

This Mobility Study aims to create a framework for considering future development plans and activities relative to the provision of safe street and sidewalk networks, alternative transportation options, and improving mobility in the area. The project team will explain the purpose of the study and the expected outcome. They'll present findings from data collection efforts and request input from community members about mobility challenges and opportunities within the study area.

The meeting will take place Tuesday, June 7, from 6–8 p.m. at the Acres Home

Multi-Service Center, located at 6719 W. Montgomery Road, Houston, Texas 77091.
