Parking Beneath Houston’s Astrodome Approved

Harris County Commissioners Court in Houston accepted a plan to develop parking beneath the long-vacant Astrodome. If the $105-million plan moves forward, it would be funded by revenues and fees, rather than a property tax increase.

The project would create 1,400 spaces. Just as important, it would create a site for potential development. The commissioners court will start reviewing specific proposals for the parking project in September.
