ARTISTS RENDERING of the new Galena Park Gateway Monument. It will stand over 20 feet tall, and be lit with a blue light for the star.

GALENA PARK – Work is underway on the construction of a “Gateway” monument, marking the entrance to Houston through the Port.

This is one of nine similar gateway projects, paid for primarily by the EconomicAlliance, a consortium of Ship Channel industries. The Alliance provided each community with a $125,000 grant, and a matching grant of $25,000 was required.

Each gateway design is different, related to the community in which they are built. Design work was by Bryan Janhsen of Knudsen landscape architects. Also planned is a plaza with statues honoring Veterans, Firefighters, and Police.

CHANNELVIEW, Texas— The Channelview Fire Department has received a US$4,405 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.

FM Global representatives presented the award to Channelview Fire Department at Station 1 located at 16229 Market Street in Channelview Texas. The award will be used to assist with fire prevention activities in the community to help educate the community and reduce the number of fires.

Because fire continues to be the leading cause of property damage worldwide, during the past 35 years FM Global has contributed millions of dollars in fire prevention grants to fire service organizations around the globe. Locally, the company has awarded grants to a number of Texas-based organizations.

The funds will be used to purchase a Surface Pro Laptop, Overhead projector, and a Sparky the Fire Dog costume.
