RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider authorizing submission of a project proposal to the Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program for consideration of grant funding for the Packery Channel Park Habitat Restoration Public Access Improvement project.
BACKGROUND
The Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program (CBBEP) is a local non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to researching, restoring and protecting the bays and estuaries of the Texas Coastal Bend. The mission of the CBBEP is the implementation of the Coastal Bend Bays Plan, which is to protect and restore the health and productivity of the bays and estuaries while supporting continued economic growth and public use of the bays. The plan identifies specific actions that will benefit the bay system and the users of the bays and includes projects for which CBBEP provides grant funding.
DISCUSSION
Nueces County would like to submit a proposal to CBBEP for the Packery Channel Park Habitat Restoration Public Access Improvement project. This project would request funds for materials to construct public access boardwalks, observation decks, and kiosks to be associated with the new and existing habitat and coastal nature resources at Packery Channel Park.

This project proposal will be submitted to CBBEP for their consideration for grant funding in the amount of $60,000. If awarded, a grant agreement will be submitted for the Court’s approval and acceptance upon receipt.
