The Galveston Bay Foundation celebrated its 30th anniversary last weekend, and he reflects on the changes in the Bay over those decades: things were different in the 80’s, lots of battles, some good victories, lots still to do. The Bayou City Initiative is right in there on a key component of the Bay system–flooding. We tell him (and he kinda agrees) that this organization of organizations is playing a valuable role in framing the political will, already: Harris County and Houston have adopted new building regulations based on the 500 year flood! Woven into the program are poems, the natural system and our gift of enjoyment–the simple life.
