Want to drastically grow the number of people living in that area ?

Build the Ike Dike inner ring but first fix the dam drainage !

Bailey, I can nominate you as an honorary member : ) I know from your many posts at the Daily News "Power to the people" reflects your support of grassroots solutions. This association joins the other well-established ones in Galveston to work cooperatively with city government and downtown businesses to enhance quality of life for all of us. Come see us on Post Office St this holiday season. The Downtown Partnership has expanded the wonderful lighting they've done on the Strand...we've got our own festive lights this year along our street!

I hope to get down there to see it. Summer is so hot and crowded I don't bother with downtown, and then when the weather gets nice I have such a long list of things I want to see I never get to them all.
