IslandDrumz

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

National Deep Dish Pizza Day!

Score.
I went to the Okie's Courtyard Design Review Committee meeting last night. OCD & RC seems legit. I gotta tell you neighbors, Some of our hard working friends and neighbors have done one heck of a job for us. It looks awesome. What I got out of the conversation was it could even be in place at least some of it by late summer. They will meet again in two weeks to firm up some of the building details and they should know more then. It's about damn time. Sad that it took 8 long years but sometimes, that's just the way it goes.
Below is tonights City Council agenda. Some of the stuff looks like it could be fun. See you there.

Vern Johnson, Mayor Bryan Hoerner
