Seabrook officials discuss gateway design
Seabrook city officials may hear some new ideas for a proposed gateway that would welcome visitors to an area called The Point, according to this article from The Bay Area Citizen.
I think we need to reconsider what we've already done,'' Councilman Garry Mack said.
The gateway over 10th Street at Todville Road gateway would be visible from Texas 146 and beckon people to The Point, which is slated for $7 million in improvements including decorative light and possibly a boardwalk.
Dori Nelson, chair of the city's Open Space, Beautification and Preservation Committee, has been added to the group that will make final recommendations for the gateway design. Mack invited her to present other ideas for the gateway, including sail and pelican imagery.
The current design includes two pillars topped by a nine-point star, with the words City of Seabrook" displayed across a banner. The design features wave imagery and crabs.
The $300,000 gateway would be funded by Seabrook's Economic Development Development Corp. with $75,000 from the nonprofit Economic Alliance Houston Port Region and a $23,000 matching grant from the Houston-Galveston Area Council.
