Galveston City Council has recently approved spot zoning beachside of the seawall between 12th Street and Stewart Beach. This makes no sense if you consider the neighborhoods and commercial areas immediately to the north of this beach area.
By setting the stage for high-rise construction on the beach, any new quality construction north of the seawall is precluded. Local neighborhoods and commercial areas will be devalued. Spot zoning for a select few takes from all of us.
