South Shore Harbour Municipal Utility District No. 7 will host a Town Hall meeting to allow residents to ask questions and learn more about the proposed Austin Lake Shoreline repair project.

The project will have all outfalls completed by early April. At that point, the final touches to the project will be addressed including, turf establishment, sidewalk repair and any punch list items.
The SOUTH SHORE HARBOUR MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT NO. 7 will hold a public hearing on a proposed tax rate for the tax year 2022 on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, at 11:30 a.m., at 2500 South Shore Blvd., League City, TX 77573. Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property. The change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in the taxable value of all other property determines the distribution of the tax burden among all property owners.
Visit Texas.gov/PropertyTaxes to find a link to your local property tax database on which you can easily access information regarding your property taxes, including information about proposed tax rates and scheduled public hearings of each entity that taxes your property.
The South Shore Harbour Municipal Utility District No. 7 bulkhead project is well underway. Recently, you may have noticed some of the damage done to the sidewalk surrounding the Lake. Please note that the District monitors and inspects the Project with daily inspections during the construction process. It is the expressed goal of the District to return the property to its original or better condition after the Project is complete. This would certainly include repair of any cracked or broken concrete or sod which has been destroyed. The Board very much understands the concerns of the Community and is aware of the inconvenience that the Project may be placing upon the residents. The Board believes the end result will be worth the temporary inconvenience and shall provide a lasting bulkhead that is both aesthetically pleasing and well constructed. The Board thanks you for your patience during the construction process.
