South Shore Harbour, a Master Planned Community in League City
If you look up the definition of ‘Master Planned Community’ on the Internet, you will find this: “A type of residential plan that includes an unusual number of recreational amenities such as parks, golf courses, lakes, bike paths, and jogging trails. The scope of the plan is very large scale and the number and variety of amenities clearly separates it from a normal plan for a housing subdivision.” When you are in the City of League City, you will discover this term is defined as South Shore Harbour.

Rear Admiral Alan Shepard, who is the first American Astronaut to journey into space, was instrumental in the development of the South Shore Harbour. Shepard served as an advisor to the South Shore Harbour development team in the early 1980s. He influenced the selection of a black-and white-banded lighthouse as the primary symbol for South Shore Harbour, which serves a reminder of the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse that Shepard recalled seeing as he blasted off into space.
