texas-coastal-spine

At their last council meeting on March 23,  League City council members voted unanimously to support the creation of the Gulf Coast Protection District, an entity that could be formed through the Texas Legislature to fund the coastal barrier.

The coastal barrier was proposed by the Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas General Land Office as a solution to protect Galveston Island, the Bolivar Peninsula, Galveston Bay and the rest of the coast from storm surge flooding caused by hurricanes.

If passed by the Texas legislature, the Gulf Coast Protection District would fund the coastal barrier and similar projects related to reducing flooding from hurricanes and coastal storm surge. 

League City council voted to approve a resolution supporting the district, therefore supporting a partnership among federal, state and local agencies to complete a regional coastal barrier. 

Watch this video for more information about the proposed coastal barrier.
