 The mission of the Downtown Oversight Committee (DOC) is to support the Galveston Park Board of Trustees (GPBT) on the marketing of downtown Galveston and its amenities and to allocate the resources endowed to the GPBT by the City of Galveston for the same.

* Downtown is defined as the area contained within the footprint of the Cultural Arts District, from Harborside Drive to Broadway and 19th to 27th Streets. 
The DOC takes direction from the GPBT and the annual work plans authorized by the GPBT, providing recommendations, insight, metrics, analysis, and direction to the GPBT on issues related to marketing and promoting tourism visitation in the downtown area. DOC’s meetings, recommendations and reports are open to the public, with all written recommendation and findings sent to the GPBT chairman for consideration by the GPBT.
