There is a problem with some condominium complexes. That is, the condo management is  telling short-term renters that they can go ahead and park their trucks and boat trailers on the  boat ramps. Unfortunately, the condo management is not providing the tenants with a PIPOA  trailer or vehicle sticker. Therefore, these poor folks are getting towed. Condo managers, please  buy stickers for your tenants. Please do not tell them to park on the boat ramps without stickers.  


It was another quiet week at the PIPOA. Not much new news to report.

Boat Ramp - The Caravel boat ramp will be closed for resurfacing began Tuesday, May 31, 2022. The resurfacing should take approximately three weeks. However, it should be open and ready for use for the July 4th holiday.

Towing- Last week, including the Memorial Day weekend, 24 trucks and boat trailers were  towed. This is a new record for towing in one week. Please get your sticker for your boat trailer.  You can purchase your sticker for $10 at the PIPOA Office located at 14015 Fortuna Bay Drive. 


It was another quiet week at the PIPOA.  Be careful what you wish for, the current rains will bring mosquitos and weeds.

Board Meeting- The Board meeting held on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, was uneventful.  Bob Corbett, our ISAC (Island Strategic Action Committee) representative, gave his report from the last ISAC meeting.  He discussed short-term rentals (STRs) and Whitecap Development.



Short-term Rentals (STRs)- On Monday, May 16, 2022, the City’s stakeholder committee held  another meeting. The meeting was called on very short notice. The purpose of the meeting was  to preview and discuss the City’s staff presentation for the City Council on Tuesday, May 17.  The meeting degenerated into bashing the Island for opposing short-term rentals in the RS-6  zoning (single-family residential). The President and CEO of the Corpus Christi Board of  Realtors were especially vehement in pushing her agenda to have unfettered short-term rentals in  the RS-6 zoning. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is in contrast to what I have been told by local real  estate brokers and agencies. It is all about the money!
