The city-county partnership established in April 2018 is an exciting opportunity to begin implementing the Acres Home Action Plan under Mayor Turner’s Complete Communities Initiative. In the plan, residents stated their goals to nurture healthy, active lifestyles and improve residents’ well-being. The city-county partnership can be an opportunity to connect pedestrians and bicyclists (and horse riders!) to area schools, transit and parks.
The Acres Home Mobility Workshop was held June 14th at Mount Ararat Baptist Church. Discussions were positive and enthusiastic as participants mapped out major destinations in the community and prioritized routes for implementation this year. Feedback from the workshop and a refined route system were presented during the June 21st Super Neighborhood 6 meeting from 6:30-8:00pm, held at the Acres Home Multiservice Center.
The community’s bikeway routes and sidewalk improvements were submitted to Harris County Precinct 1 for further analysis and consideration. They will decide which routes will be funded first. Funded projects will be posted online and we’ll hold a meeting in Acres Home before design begins.
Phase 1 represents routes that passed a preliminary feasibility analysis. Phase 2 represents routes also identified by the community, but are not feasible to implement by April 2019, as they are long-term projects.
