METRO Board of Directors asks for public input on General Mobility Program
A special meeting of the METRO Board of Directors will take place from 6-8 p.m. Monday, June 18 on the second floor of the METRO Board Room, located at 1900 Main St. and St. Joseph Parkway in Houston.
According to a press release, the purpose of the meeting is to gather input from citizens regarding METRO's General Mobility Program, currently scheduled to expire in 2014.
The press release noted that the GMP was created through a collaboration of Houston, Harris County and the surrounding cities to alleviate traffic problems and increase mobility in the region. The GMP receives its funding from sales tax collected by METRO, and this funding is used by the program for building, installing and maintaining roads, bridges, traffic lights, trails and sidewalks, streetlights, landscaping and improvements to the drainage system as well as providing money for various traffic control programs.
The program has provided more than $2 billion to the areas it serves since it began, according to the release.
