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.

To facilitate the study, TxDOT 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, which started in late 2017, 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. 

On December 6, 2017, the Board appointed Township Transit Planner, Chris LaRue to serve on the Project Ambassadors Committee (PAC) for the IH-45 North Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study. Mr. LaRue resigned from The Woodlands Township in December 2018; therefore, it is necessary for the Township Board to appoint a replacement to serve on the PAC. Staff recommends that the Board appoint the Township Appoint Deputy Director of Community Services Ruthanne Haut, who oversees the Transportation and Infrastructure Department, to represent the Township on the Project Ambassadors Committee.
RECOMMENDATION:
Appoint Deputy Director of Community Services Ruthanne Haut to serve on the Project Ambassadors Committee (PAC) for the IH-45 North Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study.
