Vision Galveston Launch Events

About this Event

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 Plans @ Central Middle School Gymnasium - A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT - BECAUSE IT'S A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE.

Vision Galveston is ready to launch! Due to weather considerations, we have merged our two Seawall and North of Broadway activations into our indoor site at Central Middle School. Join us here, to think about the future of the public realm in Galveston, along the seawall and in the North of Broadway area, and imagine how open space and quality of life in the City can be transformed to benefit both tourists and residents! We’ll discuss the future of housing, public transit, and development -- including how vacant properties can be developed in ways that reflect community history and character. And we’ll have community experts on hand to talk about their work and how it fits into the future vision. A development game will let residents tell us how they want to see North of Broadway take its next steps!

We will have food, kid-friendly activities, and areas to hang out and relax! We’ll also have talks and walking tours with our consultants and local community members.

This activation is a come and go pop-up event for everyone! If you only have a few minutes or you have a few hours, we would still love for you to stop by and interact.

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 activities, great food and drinks from a variety of local restaurants, and information on how we move forward with your ideas for Galveston. We will talk about next steps. Most of all, we will have fun.
