Strategic Master Plan Latest Slide Deck

After more than a year of research and analysis, the final draft of the Galveston Wharves 20-Year Strategic Master Plan has been completed and is being reviewed by members of the Wharves Board of Trustees.

This plan will give the port a sustainable, unified vision and direction guided by solid data, sound business decisions, and community input and support.

The comprehensive plan includes existing port conditions and a range of possible improvement projects and business scenarios. The plan also includes financial projections, funding opportunities and guidance on implementation.

Bermello, Ajamil & Partners, the international consulting firm that prepared the plan, is scheduled to make a presentation to the Wharves Board on Nov. 19. Once board member input is received, the plan will be finalized, the board will meet to adopt the plan, and a series of public meetings will be held.

Port Director Rodger Rees said, “The Strategic Master Plan comes at a pivotal time in the port’s history. Our revenues are strong, and our infrastructure needs are great. The decisions we make will have long-term impacts on the port and this community.”
