BACKGROUND:
The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is conducting a planning study known as a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study for the IH-45 North corridor between Beltway 8 in Harris County and Loop 336 in South in Montgomery County. The study aims to identify issues in the corridor and through public and stakeholder engagement, create a corridor vision and identify viable solutions.

TxDOT has requested that The Woodlands Township appoint a representative to participate on the Project Ambassadors Committee (PAC) for the study. PAC members will provide input on the corridor vision, goals and objectives, and facilitate communications with the community and government entities. Advice and recommendations will provide TxDOT with and enhanced understanding of issues unique to The Woodlands, The Woodlands Express Park and Ride service, as well as other concerns within the corridor.

The project is expected to last approximately three (3) years. The project will be broken into two (2) phases with at least one PAC meeting held during both phases. The first meeting is anticipated to be held on December 14, 2017.

Chris LaRue was appointed as an interim representative until a permanent primary and alternate representative could be appointed by the Board of Directors.

The appointments can be a Township Director or a Township staff member.

A copy of TxDOT's letter, project information flyer, and study area map are attached as reference.
