Recently, plans to design and construct a new recreational vehicle park in Galveston, Texas, were finalized. Town officials hope to increase tourism by attracting more motorhome travelers from across the country, according to the Galveston County Daily News.
The park board of trustees recently came to an agreement that will give the county $120,000 in funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to build the Seawolf RV park.
The funding will cover the architectural and engineering costs necessary to begin constructing the park, according to the Galveston County Daily News. Randall-Porterfield Architects, who have been recruited onto the project, believe that the Seawolf RV park will cost approximately $1.8 million to complete. When it is finished, there will be 44 sites for motorhome travelers who are visiting the area.
Park board executive director Lou Muller told the news source that the region has already seen success with the establishment of a motorhome campground in the past. Dellanera RV park generated $518,000 in revenue in 2007. Officials hope that the Seawolf RV park will have similar success.
Employment of architects is predicted to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
