Community meeting

Community meeting scheduled for Thursday on the Vince Bayou Trail Plan

The City of Pasadena is hosting an in-person/virtual meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, February 3 to gather public input on a planned hiking and biking trail along Vince Bayou that would aim to increase connectivity throughout the city.

The meeting will be held from 6-7 p.m. at the Peter C. Fogo Recreation Center, 914 West Hart Ave., Pasadena 77506. Participants can also attend virtually by registering at https://bityl.co/AkZG.

the The Vince Bayou Geenway Project follows a study conducted by the city in 2020 and 2021, funded by the Pasadena Economic Development Corp. (PEDC) to investigate a trail that would run along the bayou from Memorial Park, 500 W. Jackson, to Strawberry Park, 2900 Lafferty.

The city’s planning and parks and recreation departments were partners in the study, and the nonprofit Houston Parks Board served as the project leader.

Using information from multiple plans and studies, it was determined that the trail would create a safe expansive connection for pedestrians and cyclists between the city’s parks, residential areas, schools and businesses. Additionally, the trail would connect to the existing Strawberry Trail, a 3-mile concrete trail along Vince Bayou. from Strawberry Park south to Burke Crenshaw Park.

Following the completion of the first phase of design, the city will conduct an analysis of community feedback and determine the feasibility of portions of the trail that can proceed with design and construction.

Time Date: 6 p.m.-7 p.m. on February 3.

Address: Peter C. Fogo Recreation Center, Pasadena. Participants can also attend virtually by registering on https://bityl.co/AkZG.
