  • Re: Transit & Transit Oriented Development. I would hope that our elected officials will look to improve the system-wide efficiency of transit rather than simply to encourage TOD. TOD is not a panacea. It does not and cannot resolve regional transportation problems. If we were to build a brand new city on a greenfield site, then okay, that would be different. We’re not. We’re stuck with the legacy of what Houston is that is a function of what Houston was.

  • We need grade-separated mass transit; ideally some kind of elevated heavy rail, subway, or a combination of both. Removing auto lanes on major streets to put in toy trains and bus lanes is half-assed. We need real transit before we worry about the TODs to go with it.

  • Wow, that’s a remarkably dour description of the housing market from Texas Monthly. Would have expected to see some numbers to back it up though coming from such a reputable source. Not saying I disagree entirely with their statements, but it could use a little fleshing out.
