TGC lead development of the Seawall Beautification initiative which included a LCI Plan, public involvement, construction administration and oversight, and funding pursuit. In addition to this plan being adopted by City Council, the plan also figured into the Long Term Recovery Plan developed after Hurricane Ike in 2008. Improvements along Seawall Boulevard were deemed to be the showplace for recovery efforts in the community and providing real and symbolic aspects to the city’s recovery. Frito-Lay Sun Chips Brand and Kroger Stores invested in this idea by donating $1,000,000 to the City of Galveston specifically to be invested in public infrastructure along Seawall Boulevard. The investment took shape as an upgrade to the Hampton Battery of Fort Crockett Park.
