LINK Houston has been working with volunteers and our partners to comb through the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and draft our official response to TxDOT.
We urge TxDOT to:
- put forward an updated Preferred Alternative for the NHHIP based on the vision in Mayor Turner’s May 2020 position letter;
- issue a Supplemental FEIS before a formal Record-of-Decision to detail exactly how comments are “noted and will be considered as the project moves forward.”
- resolve each of the 40 unaddressed issues identified in the FEIS Report by UH CDRC and Huitt-Zollars team working for the City of Houston and Harris County pertaining to property, flooding, environment, traffic, transit connections, and local bike, pedestrian, and vehicle connections;
- return discussion of climate change impacts, which was deficient but present in the DEIS, into the FEIS.
