“In October, City Council renewed the letter of intent with Mitchell Historic Properties to develop the terminal on the city’s behalf,” said John Carrara of The Goodman Corporation in a written report to the committee, explaining that MHP purchased the property from the Brown Family Trust. “A ground lease was submitted to the city and approved by Council on December 2.”
Carrara explained that MHP will secure the services of an architectural and garage design team to develop a conceptual plan for the project to submit to the Federal Transit Administration, Galveston Historic Landmark Commission and the Texas Historical Commission.
“The goal is to be able to advertise for construction bids this coming summer,” Carrara said.
The committee also held a general discussion of the direction of the Livable Communities Initiative Project in Phase 2 and Phase 3.
The meeting was held in the old municipal courtroom at Galveston City Hall.
