Arturo Galvan Coastal Park Groundbreaking Ceremony

2015/04/18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mayor Joe E. Vega and the Port Isabel City Commission cordially invite the public to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the long anticipated Arturo Galvan Coastal Park. The event will be held Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. at the site of the Arturo Galvan Park located at 1801 2nd Street.

The City of Port Isabel was successful in obtaining two grants from the Texas General Land Office totaling close toa million dollars, for the construction of a Living Shoreline. The Port Isabel City Commission contracted with HDR Engineering, Inc. of Corpus Christi for design.  This will be the first Living Shoreline on the Laguna Madre Bay, and an example for other communities to follow.

The Living Shoreline is being built in order to stop erosion from storms and wave energy.  This will provide for increased fish and wildlife habitat, allow for pedestrian access into the Laguna Madre Bay, and protect the remaining land and neighboring homes.

City Manager Edward Meza stated “This long awaited project will increase the quality of life for everyone living in visiting our beautiful city”.
