Settled by German farmers in the mid-1800s, the Spring and Klein area has experienced tremendous growth over the past two centuries. As the local population continues to grow, so does the median home value and household incomes in most of the nine ZIP codes that make up the Spring and Klein area. At the same time, more Spring and Klein residents are seeking higher education opportunities, and the median resident age is getting slightly younger across most ZIP codes. Spring andKlein

have acquired 17 of 19 right of way parcels. We have been working on an agreement with Union Pacic, which has been the main reason for delaying the project.” According to a Texas A&M Trans- portation Institute report released Dec. 10, the 8.26-mile segment of FM 1960 between Hwy. 249 and I-45 was ranked as the 27th-most con- gested roadway in Texas in 2019. The roadway was ranked 32nd in 2018 and 73rd in 2012—the rst year the road was listed among the 100 most congested roads statewide. “The purpose of the proposed project is to improve mobility by alleviating trac congestion, improving safety and accommodating future trac associated with the anticipated growth in [and] around

the Willowbrook Mall and adjacent commercial development,” Perez said. The project will add dual left-turn lanes at Cutten Road and the Willow- brook Mall entrances, and all turning bays will be lengthened to provide additional storage capacity, Perez said. Additionally, pedestrian and bicycle accommodations will be added to the corridor, existing pavement will be completely removed and replaced and all existing span wire signals will be replaced with mast arm signals. The project is being funded 80% by federal funds and 20% by state funds. During project construction, Perez added that detours and lane closures will be communicated to the public by signage as well as through the Houston TranStar website and TxDOT’s social media.

Originally scheduled to go out for bid in 2018, a $16.4 million Texas Department of Transportation project on FM 1960 has once again been delayed, according to TxDOT Public Information Ocer Danny Perez. The project, which is intended to improve mobility along the corridor between Cutten Road and Centereld Drive in the Willowbrook area, is expected to take two years to com- plete once construction begins. While the project was originally anticipated to go out for bid in 2018, as of January 2019, the project had been pushed to February 2020. Now, the project is not slated to go out for bid until June 2021, Perez said. “The plans for the FM 1960 project are 90% complete,” he said. “We

Klein ISDoers preferred elementary school zone option

BY ADRIANA REZAL

of the meeting, concerns over the rezoning’s eect on school programs, such KISD’s Two-Way Bilingual Pathway program, were raised. The dual-language program, imple- mented by the district two years ago, is currently oered at Brill, Kaiser, Klenk and Zwink elementaries. Jennifer Trillsch, a parent of a student enrolled in the dual-language program at Brill, said its enrollment comes with a six-year commitment by both the parent and student enrolled, as students participate from kindergarten to fth grade. “Picking up and moving that program to another school or another neighborhood would really aect the stability of the program, and send a message about how [Klein ISD] values that program,” Trillsch said. Robertson said programs such as these were put into consideration

when choosing the preferred option. As the only dual-language elementary school aected by the preferred zoning option, Robertson said the program at Brill is expected to remain intact. “We have considered—in drawing our attendance boundaries—programs for dual-language bilingual programs, special ed programs and future pre-K requirements that would be reective in these numbers in the future,” Robertson said. Public zoning committee meetings were held by KISD on Oct. 30 and Nov. 4, during which seven rezoning options were presented to the public and the board of trustees. After conducting a review of pub- lic feedback, a nal recommended zoning plan will be presented for the board’s approval at the Feb. 10 board meeting at 6 p.m.

Klein ISD presented a preferred elementary school rezoning option at the Dec. 9 board meeting that could alleviate future overcrowding, but raised concern over the stability of certain school programs. The rezoning comes in preparation for the upcoming unnamed Elemen- tary School No. 33, which is slated to open in fall 2020. According to Robert Robertson, KISD’s associate superintendent of facility and school services, the new campus opening is expected to aect the attendance boundaries of other elementary schools in the district and can therefore be utilized to alleviate future overcrowding. “We should take the opportunity to balance out our enrollment at these other [elementary] schools,” he said. During the public comment portion
