Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider the acceptance of a grant award from the Rebuild Texas Fund for financial assistance to rebuild the lift station and to inspect the pier at IB Magee Park.
BACKGROUND
The Rebuild Texas Fund was created by the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, in collaboration with the OneStar Foundation. Funding through the Rebuild Texas Fund will be provided to eligible nonprofit, government, and philanthropic organizations working on the ground in Texas communities, big and small, that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. The fund will support organizations that provide services in six focus areas – community and economic development; health; housing; education and childcare; transportation and workforce; and capital for rebuilding small businesses.
DISCUSSION
The Nueces County Coastal Parks Department requested a grant award of $300,000 to rebuild the I.B. Magee Beach Park’s lift station and assist with the reopening of the Horace Caldwell Fishing Pier located on the Gulf of Mexico side of the park. The grant request totaled $300,000 with no match required. Scott Cross, Nueces County Coastal Park Director, has been informed that the project was awarded the grant.
