Did you know there are 7 city parks in our community?

Check back each week as we feature one or more of these awesome parks!

 

Butterfly Park is located at 4316 Gulf . The park is part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Mayors’ Monarch Pledge initiative. Mayor Barry Patel signed this pledge on Oct. 22, 2016, declaring the City’s support for Monarch initiatives. The park has a covered picnic bench area, butterfly statue, many varieties of native Rio Grande Valley and butterfly plants and beautiful views of the Gulf. In 2017 the park was certified as a Monarch Waystation, providing milkweeds, nectar plants and shelter for Monarchs throughout their annual cycle of reproduction and migration. www.MonarchWatch.org

This Week's Safety Tip

(Pets Matter Too!)

 

SPI Shares Safety Tips

For Pets on The Beach

 

The City of South Padre Island wants you to keep your pet’s safety in mind while enjoying the beach.

 

The City and the SPI Friends of Animal Rescue recommend these tips and precautions to keep your pets safe.

 

·    The City of South Padre Island has a leash law, so please leash your pets.

·    Don’t let your pets drink ocean water- it will upset their stomachs. Make sure to keep fresh water on hand.

·    Use pet-friendly sunscreen to help protect them from sunburns. Provide shade when possible.

·    The sand and pavement can get too hot for pet paws. Avoid taking your dogs out during peak sun times. If the sand or pavement is too hot for you, it is for them also.

·    If you live on the Island, make sure you have your pets licensed. If your animal should be lost, this will help identify them faster.

·    If you are visiting, bring your pet’s proof of vaccination and a photo so that if your pet becomes lost we can help reunite the two of you.

·    Remember your animal’s sensitive ears during fireworks that go off at 9:15 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. Please keep your pets inside or secure.

 

If you find or lose a pet, call Friends of Animal Rescue immediately on their 24/7 hotline at (956) 772-1171. All found pets will be kept safe and cared for at the shelter until they are reunited with their owners.

 

Follow these simple tips so you and your pets can enjoy all that the Island has to offer.

Check out the SPI Area's Latest Housing Reports

 

 

 

Freddie Mac: Rising Mortgage Rates DO NOT Lead To Falling Home Prices 

Recently, Freddie Mac published an Insight Report titled Nowhere to go but up? How increasing mortgage rates could affect housing. The report focused on the impact the projected rise in mortgage rates might have on the housing market this year.

Many believe that an increase in mortgage rates will cause a slowdown in purchases which would, in turn, lead to a fall in house values. Ultimately, however, prices are determined by supply and demand and while rising mortgage rates may slow demand, they also affect supply.
