How was the golf cart ordinance developed?
On December 13, 2009, the Galveston City Council appointed Galvestonians to two ad hoc committees, the East End Golf Cart Committee and the West End Golf Cart Committee. Each committee was asked to research the use of golf carts in master planned communities as well as on other public streets. After meeting over the course of several weeks the committees brought their recommendations to Council in the form of an ordinance. Throughout the process several city staff members worked with the groups, notably representatives from the police and legal departments.
