Westpark/Richmond/University rail corridor open house Tuesday
METRO will hold the first of three open houses on the Westpark / Richmond / University rail corridor on Tuesday. The Chronicle posted these details over the weekend:
Metropolitan Transit Authority has scheduled three open house sessions to review the University light rail corridor proposals with area residents.
The first upcoming meeting is from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, July 18 at the Holiday Inn Select, 2712 Southwest Freeway.
A second meeting is set for 5-8 p.m. Monday, July 24 at the Third Ward Multi-Service Center, 3611 Ennis.
From 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, Metro's open house will be at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 5501 S. Main St.
The University Corridor is being designed to ease traffic congestion and link the University of Houston, Texas Southern University, Houston Community College, St. Thomas University, Greenway Plaza, Lakewood Church and the Galleria area.
The story did not add, "and to boost real-estate development in the Galleria area." But it might have.
