Due to COVID-19, inspections normally addressed by the Waterfront Compliance Committee have been delayed. However, the City conducted courtesy inspections to make leaseholders aware of potential issues on the waterfront.
The City recently mailed waterfront lease invoices for the upcoming year, and you may have noticed that some of the invoices also included a violation report. The form mailed was the standard violation form and that was not intended, our goal was to have sent an inspection report.
The information provided on the form was valid at the time of inspection and may have been corrected by the time you received the letter. The letter references a time limit to complete work and that was not to be included in this letter. A formal inspection will take place in the week of August 3rd and that will start the official process if any unaddressed issues remain. You are not in peril of losing your lease in ten days if something is unresolved, it will be addressed in the formal process, if necessary.
Why are these inspections important?
They are vitally important in protecting our shoreline, providing for green space, allowing for beautiful views of the water, vessels and our signature sunsets and providing access for leaseholders to the water, via pier or bulkhead.
These are some of the critical issues the City identified during the inspection:
The waterfront areas are a great asset to our community. Waterfront lease holders are community partners with the city and take an active role in the preservation and beautification of the city. Sunsets are celebrated and sunrises welcomed in Clear Lake Shores. Thank you for your investment and dedication, it does not go unappreciated, by elected officials, staff, residents and visitors.
