  • Add 35 parking spaces.
  • Build a new Fire Station to replace current Station 2.
  • Upgrade Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department training field and equipment.

Prop C | Municipal Community Center | $9 Million

  • Build a new Civic Center downtown for use as a civic, recreational and senior center, and as an emergency center.

Benefits: Replace the current Activities Building, the oldest city facility, with a new and much improved building strategically located downtown, for the same cost as renovating the current building.
