KEMAH The city of Kemah has organized a public meeting to discuss a proposed 602 parking space, dual-use park-and-ride and parking facility.

The meeting to discuss the proposed approximately $12 million facility will be at 6 p.m. today at Kemah City Hall, 1401 state Highway 146, the city said.

The proposed building would be a traditional commuter park-and-ride facility Monday through Friday during the workday, said Kemah City Administrator Rick Beverlin. There would be services both northbound to the Houston (Central Business District) and the Texas Medical Center and southbound to Galveston Island, Beverlin said in an email.

Evenings and weekends, the facility would also function as a parking lot for visitors served by proposed local rubber tire trolley circulator services in and around the Lighthouse and Boardwalk Districts, he said

Beverlin said the facility is planned for the block known as the City Lot, bounded by Bradford Street, 6th Street, Harris Street and 7th Street, and currently owned by the Kemah Public Facilities Corporation.
