⚠️Traffic fatalities in #Texas are trending in the wrong direction. Last year alone, more than 3,500 people lost their lives on Texas roads.

In 2022, resolve to not be another statistic by adopting safe driving habits while traversing the roads.

✔️Always drive at safe speeds.
✔️Avoid distractions, never drive under the influence.
✔️Be mindful and courteous when sharing the road with pedestrians, bicyclists, people with disabilities, and transit riders.

By practicing these responsible driving habits, you can avoid paying the price.

Visit www.h-gac.com/paytheprice for tips and resources on how you can help improve #TransportationSafety in the #region.

Yesterday, Norris Design Principal Rick Leisner, AICP, PLA presented with members of the Houston-Galveston Area Council on the topic of Bringing Back Main Street. Discussing why and how downtowns are important, Rick and others shared strategic methods for building downtowns from scratch.
Here today with Council member William King for monthly Houston-Galveston Area Council meetings. Finance Committee, Board Of Director’s meeting, and now the Water Resource Committee meeting. It is important to make sure Dickinson is not left out of access to State and Federal funding to help the citizens.
Craig Raborn, transportation director of metropolitan planning organization Houston-Galveston Area Council, said Houston-area entities will have 11 new grant programs to apply for. Raborn said the bill’s broad scope will increase funding to programs, such as the Surface Transportation Block Grant, which is seeing a 24% increase in funding. “It’s a big bill; there’s a lot in it,” Raborn said. “And so it’s going to take a lot of time for agencies like ours to find and match the pieces to the needs they have.” #transportation #infrastructure #mobility #innovation https://communityimpact.com/houston/cy-fair/transportation/2022/01/07/houston-area-mobility-groups-plan-for-federal-funds-from-12-trillion-bill/
