That's Peter Brown, ARCHITECT

KHOU-11's Lee McGuire has a great quote from Councilmember Peter Brown on some goofy construction at the new Costco on Richmond:

We found a traffic signal and utility pole sticking out of a handicap ramp on the sidewalk.

The maze lines one side of the new Costco shopping complex along Richmond. The sidewalk is part of Houston's effort to become more pedestrian friendly.


Peter Brown, ARCHITECT
Houston City Council Member Peter Brown saw the sidewalk for himself on Thursday.

"Well that's a brand new pole," Brown said. "This is really the dumbest kind of construction I've seen in a long time and you know I'm an architect."


"It's really frightening, it's atrocious that this would happen in a new project," Brown said. "But, you know, you can't blame anybody particularly, except I would blame the city for not having standards."

Peter Brown is an architect? Who knew?
