Motorhome enthusiasts who are ready to take off their RV cover
and hit the road will have a new park to visit in Galveston, Texas. 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 money 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.
Dellanera RV park, a nearby motorhome campground, suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Ike two years ago. However, the campground generated $518,000 in revenue in 2007. Officials hope that the Seawolf RV park will have similar success.
"New water and sewer lines have been installed, electrical work is under way," park board executive director Lou Muller told the news source, discussing renovations to Dellanera.
Muller adds that they anticipate Dellanera repairs to be completed by April if the weather cooperates in the area.
