More About the Building A Better Broadway Project

The Broadway Corridor project will discover new land uses and redevelopment opportunities along the corridor, and identify tools and incentives that help existing property owners achieve improved standards. The plan will also recommend public right of way enhancements, such as multi-modal transportation, public art, holiday displays, lighting, and upgraded elements for improved function and aesthetics. This effort will envision immediate and long-term improvement strategies that build upon updated Broadway Design Guidelines underway by the Broadway Ad Hoc Committee. The process will be concurrent with an analysis of the possible expansion and creation of Galveston historical districts. Community engagement meetings will continue to be held through fall of 2017.

The City will be working with the consultant­ to keep all information about the project up to date on our website. Follow along at www.galvestontx.gov/buildingabetterbroadway for the latest.
