METRO refutes change in Light Rail to Northline

After hearing criticism and skepticism from local government officials, and reading reports in local media such as the Northeast News, Houston Chronicle, and broadcast media, the new President of METRO, Frank Wilson, met with local leaders last Tuesday evening, including Erv Baumeyer, Chairman of the North Houston Greenspoint Chamber, to reassure them that the plans had not been changed and that the route to Northline Mall was still the number one priority, and had been submitted to the federal authorities with this schedule.

Last week officials including Councilman Adrian Garcia, and State Senator Mario Gallegos had appeared at the Metro public board meeting, to protest the stories they had heard about a change in the construction schedule that would favor the west side of Houston first.
