Replant Galveston's Trees
Galveston lost 40,000 trees to Hurricane Ike’s salt water flooding. Re-establishing our urban canopy is a top priority. The goal is to re-establish a diverse and more sustainable urban tree canopy by the end of 2014.
Commitment To Affordable Housing
Galveston is currently dealing with an issue of rebuilding and replacing low income housing destroyed by Hurricane Ike. This current situation has led us to ask, "whose responsibility is it to care for those who do not have or cannot afford reasonable housing?"
Small Business Development
Small and Local businesses are the backbone of our Island economy, and Galveston's hard working business owners and employees buy their goods and groceries in Island retail establishments, recycling those funds many times over. Galveston's local government supports local businesses, so let us know if you have a small business or a good idea that we can champion!
