"In particular, this is the first draft of the concepts behind the design guidelines," he said. "We don't have an ordinance for you yet."

The director added that he hopes to have the final report presented to the city council by the end of the year.

Amy Harbert of Design Workshop then led a presentation on the Broadway project overview.

The city council also held a discussion on an ordinance amending the 2015 Galveston Land Development Regulations.

In a nod to the Houston Astros' ongoing World Series run, the city council wore team paraphernalia.

Mayor Jim Yarbrough was absent. Workshop Agenda
