Sandhill Shores
Galveston Island, Texas
Sandhill Shores is a wonderful small beachfront community with unique luxury homes built behind the best sand dunes on the West End of Galveston Island. Our neighborhood association rebuilt our dunes after they were flattened by Hurricane Ike in 2008 and have watched them grow ever since.

Sandhill Shores was developed by Homer Verner in 1999, and is governed by the Sandhill Shores Restrictions, Covenants and Conditions. As provided for in the Restrictions, the Sandhill Shores Property Owners Association was organized in 2004 to promote the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the subdivision and to perform those functions required to properly manage the affairs of the subdivision. It is a Texas nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Directors. Along with the Restrictions, the Association is governed by its Bylaws, both of which can be found on this web site as well as various policies and procedures of the Association. Our common areas are managed by the homeowners who volunteer their time and whose efforts have resulted in a beautiful entry and landscaping.

In order to keep our beach clear of the seaweed and debris which washes up on the beach in the summer, the residents have voted each year to hire a contractor to relocate the seaweed to the southern toe of the dunes. This action helps sand to accrete as well as contributing to the widening of the dunes while allowing our residents and guests to enjoy the beach. The dunes are very important as they help prevent our homes from damage during high tides, storms and provide shelter for the nesting Ridley sea turtles who have laid eggs on them for several years.

The members of the Board of Directors of the Association are as follows:

Robert Dolgin, President/Treasurer
Carolyn Garcia, Secretary
Peter Moss, David Branton and Judy Thigpen

The members of the Architectural Control Committee are as follows:

Joe Edmonds, Gene Johnson and Charles Sims

The mailing address of the Association is P.O. Box 5336, Galveston, TX  77554.
