Transcript Light Rail Plan Includes Route Through Montrose APRIL 10, 1987 / MONTROSE VOICE 3 By Linda Wyche Montrose Voice City Councilman George Greanias said Thursday that he will not form an opinion on the Metropolitan Transit Authority's light rail plan until he "takes a long look at it." The plan, which would greatly impact Greanias' District C, which includes Montrose, was outlined Tuesday to the Metro board of directors by general manager Alan Kiepper. The 15-mile, $750 million rail system is part of a $2.2 billion project which, along with light rail, includes new buses and a bus mall. The system features trolley like cars which draw electric power from overhead lines. The tracks will run down the middle of Post Oak, Main Street and Richmond Avenue. lt is the Richmond route that is a major concern of Greanias. "This plan will take some time to understand," he said adding, "I'll have to take a close look at it." The widening of Richmond, a project heavily pushed by Greanias, was recently completed. Businesses that survived the two years of disruption are just beginning to recover and the idea of once again having major construction along that thoroughfare is something that will weigh heavily when the councilman forms his opinion of the plan. "I am extremely concerned about the affect on businesses in the area. We certainly must consider this since we've finished the work (on Richmond) and did such a beautiful job," explained Greanias. Part of the cost of the plan includes money needed to acquire property but no compensation is made for disruption of business. The proposed Richmond route will cross Weslayan, Buffalo Speedway, Kirby, Shepherd and Montrose, with a regional transit center at Main and Richmond. The plan calls forthe system to be ready by 1998. The 1998 completion date can be reached only if Metro raises the neces- montrose VOICE HOUSTON, TEXAS ISSUE 337 FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 1987 Published weekly Community Publishing Company 408 Avondale Houston, TX 77006 Phone (713) 529-8490 Contents copyright 1987 Office hours: 8am-6pm Henry M cC IU rglpub lisher-adilor Linda Wyche/managing editor David Roumfort/pfo-uctfon SUBSCRIPTIONS (713) 529-8490 ADVERTISING SALES DEPARTMENT (713) 529-8490 Jerry M_lh_lland/__i'er//s/nj} director Ken Boqe/account executive POSTMASTER: Send address corrections to 408 Avon- dale.

The board will analyze public opinion presented through a series of public hearings before deciding whether to proceed with the plan. Greanias believes that, if voters approve the sale of $1.36 billion in bonds needed to finance the project, it will be late 1988 before any construction can begin. If the green light is issued, Kiepper says the plan will generate 9,275 jobs. This is also an element that city officials will consider when looking at the cost of implementing such a system. "How the cost ofthe program benefits the community as a whole" is also a major issue with Greanias. "We cannot look at just one segment." Unlike Greanias, some members of council immediately expressed opposition to the plan. Recognizing that previous rail plans were handily defeated, Greanias believes this latest attempt to solve Houston's every-growing traffic problems is going to face an uphill climb. He said, "This is going to be a tough thing to get through." He also indicated that powerful business interests will be influential in determining if Houston will join other major American cities in revitalizing a century old form of urban transit. A similar system opened in Portland, Oreg., in 1986 and Los Angeles officials Nelson Comes in 2nd in Dallas Montrose Voice News Services DALLAS (UPI)—Longtime Texas gay activist Bill Nelson came in second last Saturday in a three-way race for a Dallas City Council seat but captured only about 23% of the vote. At-large incumbent Jerry Rucker won without a runoff with about 66% ofthe vote. Businessman Roy H. Williams was third with about 10%. The projected final figures gave Rucker about 49,800, Nelson, president ofthe Dallas Gay Alliance, about 17,400 and Williams about 7,800. Two Nelson supporters near election eve videotaped a 30-minute discussion responding to remarks by the TV evangelist James Robison and land developer Jim Williams Jr. that were aired on three Dallas UHF television stations. During a 30-minute discussion, Robison and Williams said homosexuals were one group trying to take control of the City Council and cited the candidacy of Nelson. Robison also said he did not believe that Nelson, if elected, could truthfully take the oath of office to uphold city and state laws, including the sodomy law. After complaining that he was entitled to equal time under the Fairness Doctrine, the three stations, KDFI- TV, KLTJ-TV and KDTX-TV, agreed to air Nelson's response. Nelson's response was a 30-minute discussion between Charlotte Taft, director of the Routh Street Women's Clinic and a member ofthe Dallas Area Women's Political Caucus, and Ann Brown, a school teacher and Nelson volunteer. hope to clear up their freeways when their system is completed in 1989.
