The Bring the Battleship to Baytown committee is still working diligently!

We recently initiated an endorsement survey with the intent of illustrating to the Baytown City Council the local enthusiasm of bringing the battleship to our city.  We have now received 839 responses. Of those 839 responses, 804 were “Yes! Bring the Battleship to Baytown” and only 35 were “No.” Most of the responses are from Baytown, however some are from supporters in surrounding areas, as well.

I agree completely with Jay Eshbach. There is not a better site, visually or access wise, for the new location of the USS Texas. Within 24 months there will be a world-class Convention Center with a Hyatt Regency Headquarters Hotel at the Bayland location.....and new restaurants and other commercial development will occur. What a destination for visitors to the Ship.
