Please join the Vision Galveston team, as we celebrate the launch of the project into the next phase. We have heard from many of you during the last seven months of outreach, and now it’s time to come together around a set of recommended actions for the future of the City.
We will launch the Vision Galveston plan with a series of events on June 6th. Vision Galveston and the consultant team will present the framework with detail and images you haven’t seen before, starting at 1:30 p.m. We will also announce the next steps for the plan, and what we will do to make sure the ideas get implemented. Following that, from 3:00 - 5:45 p.m., we will have a series of events around the City to focus on the big ideas in the plan. These will include temporary installations to show the opportunities in these sites, opportunities to talk to the consultants, activities, talks by local experts, tours, and information on the plan. At 6:00 p.m., we’ll have an after-party, with drinks and conversation to wrap up the day.
Details for each event are below!
1:30-3pm : Vision Galveston Keynote Presentation @ Hotel Galvez Veranda Room
Vision Galveston, the consultant team, and special guests, will present the framework with detail and images you haven’t seen before. We’ll also announce the next steps in making these ideas real.
3:00-5:45pm: Activation 1: Seawall @ 19th-21st Street - A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT - BECAUSE IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.
The Vision Galveston plan recommends redesigning the Seawall to be a great public space where people can ‘come together. As a preview of what this might feel like, outside of Hotel Galvez, from 19th to 21st Street, we will temporarily occupy Seawall Boulevard with activities for all ages from 3:30 - 5:45 p.m. Join us here, to think about the future of the public realm in Galveston, particularly along the seawall and imagine how open space and quality of life in the City can be transformed to benefit both tourists and residents!
3:00-5:45pm: Activation 2 : North of Broadway - A PLACE WHERE RESIDENTS CAN FIND QUALITY JOBS, AND WHERE ALL WORKERS CAN FIND QUALITY PLACES TO LIVE.
Vision Galveston is ready to launch! Please join us for an event in the North of Broadway area that will bring the community together to discuss the future of housing, development, public transit, and more. We’ll hear about plans to reduce street flooding and make sure all residents have quality housing options that they can afford. We’ll also discuss how vacant properties can be developed in ways that reflect the community’s history and character. A development game will let residents tell us how they want to see North of Broadway take its next steps!
6-8pm: Activation 3: Launch Party @ Pier 21- A CITY THAT IS VALUED FOR ITS CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE HOUSTON REGION, THE STATE OF TEXAS, AND THE NATION.
Come celebrate Vision Galveston and everything it could lead to with drinks, visions, recommendations, and a chance to talk to the consultants and your fellow Galvestonians. We will have information about what the plan contains, with the opportunity to ask questions. We will be showing some of the amazing public input we got over the course of the plan. We will have fun activities. We will talk about next steps. Most of all, we will have fun.
