I think we are in need of a history lesson. For this we need input from all you movers and shakers out there so the rest of us will be better informed. The way I understand it is that P&Z rezoned the Sandbar property. That makes the first question, Why? As an existing business it was of course grandfathered so it was a non issue. Until Ike. To be rebuilt it had to be restaurant that served booze instead of a bar that served food. To make that leap I hear the TABC monitors the books to make sure food is the top money maker. So what happens if you open a restaurant that serves booze and no body eats? What was the impetus at P&Z to rezone in the first place? Who was on P&Z? Who was on Council at the time? Come on speak up and end the speculation. Can it be zoned back to what it was? It was a bar in '84 when I first started hanging around and I don't remember it ever being vacant. Seems it was a good fit all the way around. This also sounds like something right up the EDC's alley. What can they do to help? I think 4 years is long enough to look at all these vacant lots and I think the City can use the income. Enquiring minds......I'm going to watch the game.
Keep your cameras handy tomorrow. Endeavour will be making a few passes around the area strapped to the back of a 747. I promise you, it will take your breath away.

Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab
