Since September 13th, 2008, the City of Galveston has been in a state of recovery from the devastation left behind by Hurricane Ike. As a community, the combined efforts of residents, business owners, and property owners has been directed toward rehabilitation allowing certain issues to go “unnoticed” as emphasis was placed on the goal of fully restoring the Island. Seven years later, Galvestonians can take pride in how the community has championed recovery efforts and use these successes as a catalyst to foster further revitalization. Our Island community has once again displayed its resilience as a beloved place to call home with thriving port and tourism industries, revitalized historic districts, and world renowned health care centers.
Now moving forward, efforts can be focused on bringing all properties into full compliance with City codes and ordinances. Through a combined effort, these problem areas can be addressed making the Island a clean, safe, and enjoyable destination for all. Below is a list of some of the most common infractions.
