Prof. Brasi teaches with the fishes

Our colleagues at TAMU-CC are helping to develop a Naval base that's closing.
Q: Is the authority redeveloping all the property?

A: No. It’s redeveloping 155 acres, of which more than 100 are underwater.
Q: What does the port plan to do with the property?

A: The port has reached an agreement for the Texas A&M University System to oversee the property’s redevelopment. University officials will emphasize job creation, light industry and research and development. They are not considering a college campus or residential- or resort-type developments. They do, however, expect to emphasize ventures that could involve the various A&M campuses’ resources, faculties and students.
Vision 1920 thinks this is a missed opportunity.
