Message from the Mayor

Welcome to our website. I hope you find these online resources helpful. It is one of many ways to provide residents with access to local government and the opportunity to give your input. You will find a wealth of information on the City Charter, City Council, City Boards and the many activities and plans of the various City Departments.

If you are a visitor, welcome to our very special coastal community. We strive to make Port Aransas a great family vacation destination. Whether you are here for world-class fishing, beachcombing, bird watching or any number of other activities, we hope you enjoy your stay and come back to see us. The Chamber of Commerce website ( is an excellent source of information on activities and places to stay, eat and shop and also offers a complete business directory.

In recent years Port Aransas has added some great new amenities. The 18-hole Arnold Palmer links course at Newport Dunes has earned critical acclaim from golfers and a variety of national publications. The Port Aransas Museum is a welcome addition to our community where you can enjoy the collection of photographs, videos, artifacts and stories that chronicle the history of our town and its citizens. Last but not least, the new Skate Park has quickly become a major attraction.

The City's commitment to our barrier island environment through our dune management, parks and natural areas is unparalleled in Texas. We are currently working to complete the final phases of our 1,200 acre nature preserve.

We work diligently to preserve our island heritage while planning for the future and moving forward. Residents voted for and approved two bond initiatives for numerous street and drainage infrastructure improvements. We are proud to have an award-winning school district, rated exemplary by the State of Texas.

I welcome your comments, questions and ideas. Please feel free to email me at Thank you for your interest.
