Default City of Houston Annexation

Why you should not consider Buying your home in Summerwood or Lake Shores, the City has what is called LPA (Limited Purpose Annexation) and you will be under the City of Houston and will be paying Higher taxes than if you purchased your home just South of Summerwood off the Sam Houston Parkway. stay away from Humble ISD and Galena Park ISD The City of Houston has contracts on most of the Mud Districts in North Shore and around Humble ISD.

Sidney is correct. The MUDs in that area purchase their water from the city. The city will annex these areas when they are fully developed (one of their usual tactics) be on the lookout for it. Of course, you could always pay the city bribes like the Woodlands or the plants they tried to annex in Channelview. That ETA really is a bad thing.

That is really a dumb reason.
