Many of us share your thoughts. Unfortunately the city council in place in Galveston today is not oriented toward island residents. Money and tourists are the focal point for our council in Galveston, not taxpaying citizens. Unfortunately Mr. Maceo will have his hotel.
I don't think you can stop progress, especially on beach-front property like PB.There is still some nice places on the west end. 50 acres on the island is massive.Bring on the big development and increase the tax base. Galveston shouldn't continue to depend on the west end to pay the bills.
David, we can have our cake and eat it too. My columns point our the greater gain in property tax north of seawall if the invaluable asset of a natural beach is preserved. City council agreed in 2015.
