Inside the Mobile Information Unit (MIU), Texas General Land Office coastal experts can sit down, one-on-one, with property owners to help them sort though the tangle of permits and laws that often accompany coastal construction. Staff members familiar with the Texas Open Beaches Act, coastal building permits and local issues will stay as long as it takes to make sure every question is answered.

The Land Office's MIUs can set up in a parking lot or on the street — wherever they are needed — to help as many people as possible understand their rebuilding rights.

The MIUs are most useful after any major storm, when they're deployed into the heart of the destruction to help property owners handle a dizzying array of questions as they struggle to recover.
