July 2018 Report to Members

Neighbors,

 

It’s hard to believe summer is practically over. The older I get the faster time goes. 

 

Each and every day things are getting better and better. Maybe not with our bridge, but there is a lot of construction on the island and new build permits moving fast. 

 

 

Fourth of July Celebration a Resounding Success

 

We could not have made it happen without the hard work of Bonnie Carlise, Keitha Spiekerman and all the volunteers who put many long hours into the Fourth of July Celebration held at Blue Heron Park. From great music, to good food, to kids games and even the dunking booth, our owners were able to come out and enjoy what will definitely become an annual tradition on the island.

We would love your input about this event and future events. You can help us by filling out a survey here.

 

 

FEMA Agrees to Remove Storm Debris

 

Rockport Mayor, Pat Rios and Aransas County Judge, Burt Mills delivered some exciting news to us recently—Key Allegro canals are finally going to get cleaned up!

 

You can thank Mayor Rios, Judge Mills (along with the Aransas County Long Term Recovery Team) and U. S. Sen. Ted Cruz for this one. Senator Cruz came down to ensure progress was being made in Aransas County. The officials toured Key Allegro first.

 

Mayor Rios and Judge Mills provided the senator with a compelling argument about our waterways regarding hurricane precedents and the health and safety of our residents. The senator then persuaded the right folks at the federal level and made it happen.

 

The project is scheduled to start in August. It is my understanding that all areas affected will be cleaned (Aransas County canal communities). Contracts are in the works. Once we know specific timing for Key Allegro, we will let everyone know.

 

Thank a Board member. This has been a top priority and a weekly push by our officials for the last 11 months.

 

Pool Reopens

 

The Allegro House pool is now open through the summer until we can finalize the remodel plans for the facility—in other words it will be a bit undeveloped, with pool area, bathrooms and chairs, but no real shade, landscaping or other accommodations. If you had a pool fob that survived the storm, it should work on the entrance gate.

 

Bridge Update

 

Until further notice, the bridge will be down to one lane traffic going on and off the island. We understand the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is in the early stages of planning for a new bridge system. To date, a schedule to begin construction has not been set.
