Due to Storms Laura, Beta and Delta, Galveston's West End and our subdivision Spanish Grant Beach have experienced significant damage to the dunes . The Board is in continuous discussion with City and State officials as well as the General Land Office as part of this emergency declaration. Please remember there is no parking on the beach as at this time our fencing has been damaged along East and West Buena Vista.
The architectural committee remind you of your homeowner obligation to maintain the exterior of your property. It is critical that paint and other needs due to the salt air exposure are taken care of in compliance with our deed restrictions and bylaws.
A Galveston Law enforcement security patrol has been authorized for Memorial Day Weekend to insure the safety of you and your guests and compliance with city ordinances including those forbidding the use of fireworks.
It is your responsibility as an owner to ensure that your trash can(s) are removed from the side of the street after trash pickup. If you cannot do that yourself, please make arrangements to have someone do it for you. There are services that will take care of your trash cans for a nominal fee. Having trash cans sitting by the street for days at a time is against city ordinance and also does not reflect well on our community.
If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact one of us.
