Three years after the destruction of Hurricane Ike, the supply of affordable housing in Galveston remains one of the many challenges to full recovery in the region. The following was developed to help aid in community dialogue and planning efforts directed at addressing this challenge.
After receiving numerous requests to apply some of our analytical tools to the affordable housing redevelopment issues in the aftermath of the hurricane for the Galveston area, the Institute responded with this report as part of our public service commitment to communities hard hit by natural disasters in the Gulf, as we have done in New Orleans, Alabama and Mississippi. Our mapping analysis of opportunity in the Galveston area does not represent the interests of any particular group involved in housing redevelopment in the region. We hope our work provides a framework to build consensus and identify solutions to producing an equitable, healthy and economically vibrant Gulf Coast community.
