HOUSTON AREA: Environmental Justice Workshops – April 20-28

YOU’RE INVITED TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WORKSHOPS

FOR THE GALVESTON- HOUSTON COMMUTER RAIL ALTERNATIVES ANALYSIS

Throughout the course of the Galveston – Houston Alternatives Analysis study a myriad of public meetings have been held throughout the 50 mile corridor. In addition to those public meetings, we would like to involve the organizations that represent the interests of the populations of concern along the SH 3 corridor and IH 45 corridor that could be most impacted by mobility developments.

As such we are inviting your organization to participate in the workshops for the purpose of addressing the environmental assessment and discussing potential mitigation efforts that may be necessary for each alternative. All organizations that represent minority, low income, elderly, disabled, or at risk populations are encouraged to participate in one or more of these events. Representatives of Environment and Health Advocates are also encouraged to attend.

For more information about the study and the alternatives, please visit our website at www.galvestonrailstudy.com
