A lot  more detail in this:                                                                                                        Draft presented on February 20, 2018: https://uploads-ssl.webflow.com/59d5518947ecf500018f07c8/5aa068c05924ff0001522cf4_Bellaire…

NOTES from the February 20th presentation:  The proposed Loop System pathway width may be 8 feet and it runs throughout Bellaire neighborhoods.

PLEASE study the maps included in this presentation. The estimated total cost is approximately $8 million, not including the cost for rights of way, utility relocation, and other attendant costs.  Another $1.5 million is shown for sidewalks.

According to the PowerPoint presentation a survey (Survey Monkey) of Bellaire residents garnered 440 responses, 7 of them non-residents.   Let City Council know what you think.   Were you aware of the presentation in January or February?  I was not.  Nothing in the water bill, nothing distributed door-to-door with the trash bags.  What do you think?  Is it time to organize?  Please post your comments on the User Comments page.
