What is the Community Advisory Panel?

Port Freeport is ranked among the Nation’s top 30 ports. As an economic driver in Brazoria County, the region and Texas, Port Freeport is committed to keeping local communities informed of our current operations, future activities and financial status. As a result, Port Freeport’s Commission and the Chief Executive Officer formed the “Community Advisory Panel.”

The Community Advisory Panel (C.A.P.), formerly known as “Krewe of Port Freeport”, was established in 2009.  The C.A.P.’s purpose is to forge a partnership based on transparency and education and to receive feedback from established and interested leaders in the Port Freeport Community. Members of the panel have become the voice for Port Freeport to their communities!
