Chron's story on Grand Parkway meeting

I was able to attend the Grand Parkway meeting last night and I'll get a post written up later today. For now, though, here's the Chronicle's story, by Kim Jackson:

State transportation officials assured Spring-area residents Wednesday night that TxDOT, and not the Harris County Toll Road Authority, is overseeing a project that would run through the rapidly developing north Harris County suburb.


Residents are concerned that, if the project is turned over to the toll road authority, they would not have an opportunity to make public comments on the environmental and social impacts the chosen route would have on neighborhoods.

"We are looking at (the toll road authority) as a potential funding partner," Trietsch said. "We will select that route with the least amount of impacts. There are no routes available, however, that have zero impacts."

It was great to see this in today's "City & State" section, since I was expecting a story to appear in next week's "This Week" section. It's nice to be wrong!

KTRK-13 has a small blurb on the concerns of residents and KRIV-26 had a camera crew at the meeting. I have no idea if anything ran on KRIV last night since I was still at the meeting.
