Christof tells us about an unused right-of-way inside Loop 610 called the Eureka Corridor and some currently languishing plans to turn it into a bike trail. The nifty part of this is a proposal by the White Oak Bayou Association (WOBA) to connect it to some existing bike trails in the Heights, Oak Forest, and all the way out to Memorial Park. WOBA is holding a meeting tonight (Thursday, March 30) at 7:30 PM to discuss this - send an email to their VP Linda Mercer at EurekaRedHawks@yahoo.com if you're interested.

What's not to like? Check it out, and let your City Council member know what you think - the area in question encompasses Council Districts A (Toni Lawrence (713) 247-2010) and H (Adrian Garcia (713) 247-2003).
