RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the ratification of submission of a project proposal to the Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program for consideration of grant funding for the Packery Channel Nature Preserve Park 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 Coastal Parks submitted a proposal to CBBEP for the Packery Channel Nature Preserve Park. The purpose of this project is to construct an elevated covered pavilion at the Park’s shoreline, a covered observation deck near the oak motte, public access, and educational exhibits at the Packery Channel Nature Preserve Park. This project will involve the planning, development, design, permitting analysis, construction, and management (oversight) for each project feature as well as the development and fabrication of educational exhibits.

This project proposal was submitted to CBBEP for their consideration for grant funding in the amount of $73,060 with no match required. If awarded, a grant agreement will be submitted for the Court’s approval and acceptance upon receipt.
