dc.description.abstract The climate is changing and there is an increase of hurricanes, fl ood events, and isolated storms. Storm surge and fl ooding have become a severe and recurring issue aff ecting Galveston Island, Texas. The impact of said events threatens the economy, culture, and ecology of the Island. The Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Bay are interwoven in the social and economic framework of Galveston Island. The purpose of the report is a proposed master plan of Galveston Island, Texas that increases the Islands Resiliency to storm surge and fl ooding. The master plan is informed through a study of literature, precedent studies, interviews with city offi cials, and an assessment of the Island. The project addresses how hybrid-infrastructure principals may be applied to Galveston Island to reduce the impact of storm surge and fl ooding. en_US
