LATEST UPDATE MAY 2023
Board Members have noticed that construction on SPUR 5 has started. FCC has contacted Councilwoman Sally Acorn's office to ask for help to find out how it is possible that a project that has been voted to be delayed by HGAC's TPC until 2026 has started.
Please see the internal communication from the University of Houston stating that the construction has started and mentioning the other parts of the project. There is no mention anywhere that the project is being delayed or modified.

FCC officers at the H-GAC
Have you heard of the Houston-Galveston Area Council ?
Also known as H-GAC, it is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO).
The Houston Galveston Area Council (H-GAC)'s job is to develop transit funding priorities and project budgets for state and federal transportation dollars.
They do this by having a yearly transportation improvement program (TIP) which is a list of projects that are
available to receive funding. For a transportation project to get funding it must be in the TIP.
Their Transportation Policy Council meet on January 27th and two of FCC's Officers attended to provide public comments.
