Richmond Avenue Workshop

The Richmond Avenue community came together at the Richmond Avenue Workshop on January 19, 2007.

Residents, businesspeople, and representatives of local institutions learned about options for station locations, street design, parking, sidewalks, trees, bike racks, construction mitigation, and more.

Here are printable copies of the information presented at the workshop:

Take what you learned and tell the City of Houston, METRO, and your local civic club and business association what you want. This flyer will tell you how.

Be sure to attend the city's Urban Corridors Workshop, which will discuss issues related to Pedestrian Realm, Traffic and Parking, and Neighborhood Development as part of a process to develop new city standards and parking regulations.
