Dear editor:

The City of Aransas Pass has been attempting to annex land to the north. They started with one big section, and then broke it down into three phases.

An Association formed in protest to the city’s annexation attempt.  They have had at least two meetings.  The last one I attended as an observer, the Association offered Aransas Pass two choices that would be acceptable. The first was to proceed as it wanted, but requiring the city to do various things per state laws.  The second was an agreement in lieu of the bigger annexation, which would have extended the city limits, but would have only been a limited strip up Business 35 next to the bay. These negotiations are not over.

Now, some residents have received letters which appear to state Aransas Pass will not proceed with annexation for 45 years or until there is subdivision development.

Actually, the letter states “up to 45 years” or until there’s development.  Up to 45 years could be anytime less than 45 years and could be in the next five years.

I’m not an attorney, but I have to suggest no one sign this.  Texas ended forced annexation.  If you sign authorization to this, you are volunteering for annexation.

Be aware!  Be very aware!
