City Joins H-GAC, Partnering Agencies In Regional Pedestrian & Bicycle Plan

Happening

Missouri City is joining the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) and surrounding agencies to update H-GAC’s Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan as part of the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan update. Residents can voice their opinion by filling out these pedestrian surveys:

Throughout the past few years, H-GAC has been working with stakeholders to develop the 2040 Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. The 2040 Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan was adopted by the Transportation Policy Council on Jan. 22, 2015.

What is the Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan?

The Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan is a long-range planning document that describes the greater-Houston region’s vision for enhancing pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure within the eight-county Transportation Management Area (TMA). It supports the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), a long-range, multi-modal transportation plan that guides investment in all types of transportation infrastructure throughout the Houston-Galveston area.

Why do we need the Regional Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan?

The greater-Houston region is home to more than 6 million people who live in rural towns, suburban communities and dense urban centers. By 2040, this region is expected to have 3.2 million more residents. As the region grows, greater demand will be placed on our transportation system. Enhancing the region’s pedestrian and bicycle network will provide greater transportation options for people of all ages and abilities, while improving public health and creating new economic development opportunities.

Learn more about the plan on H-GAC's website.

H-GAC is also hosting public meetings on the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan to hear stakeholders’ thoughts about how to improve the greater-Houston region’s current transportation system, prepare for the years ahead and learn transportation priorities from residents.

The next meeting will take place today (Wednesday, March 28) from 6 – 8 p.m. at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd N., Sugar Land. Learn More
