About us

We want to save the Texas Coast.

SaveBolivar.org was originally formed to spread the word about the US Army Corps of Engineers' plan to build a 20 foot high, 27 mile long wall along highway 87 on the Bolivar Peninsula.  This will effectively destroy the economy and wildlife, including several endangered species.  In addition, it will  decimate the property values and the community we know and love.  This plan will cost over 30 billion dollars and is a gross misuse of tax payer funds.  We have grown and want to support our entire Texas Coastline and all the communities effected by this barrier.  Please come back often for more news and information about this important topic.  The barrier system will impact 10% of our Texas Coast!  


There is a better solution to the US Army Corps of Engineers' Coastal Barrier Plan.   The Galveston Bay Park Plan provides more localized protection where it is needed most.  It can be done more cost effectively and more quickly.  This plan will produce better results by saving our most valuable resources, our petrochemical industry and our environment.  


The official public comment period closes on February 8th. We encourage you to write to your governmental officials and let them know we don't want the Coastal Barrier.  


Write or email the US Army Corp of Engineers at CoastalTexas@usace.army.mil and  find the information to contact our governmental officials on our Home Page.  Don't forget to Sign our Petition.

Tell everyone you can about the Coastal Barrier Plan.  It will impact more than just the Bolivar Peninsula's property and business owners.  The surrounding communities will also be effected.   


Something else to consider, funding this Coastal Barrier Plan, when there is a better, less expensive option is a gross misuse of tax payer dollars. We must stand together and oppose this Coastal Barrier Plan.
