The Shoreline Task Force met Monday morning for their regular meeting. The RESTORE Act projects submissions continue to be a major focus for the group along with many other grant projects that are underway.
City Manager Bill DiLibero informed the task force that meetings are proceeding with grant consultant Peter Ravella and economists to measure the economic benefits of proposed projects like a new public boat ramp on Corral Street and an additional ecotourism center near the SPI Birding and Nature Center and Sea Turtle, Inc. Additionally, the search is on to fill the shoes of previous Coastal Resource and Parks Administrator Reuben Treviño, who made the move to Galveston, with the newly designated position of Shoreline Director. Interviews of three candidates took place Tuesday.
