The new newspaper’s general manager, Cathy Turner, along with Community Impact Newspaper’s Houston publishers, Jason Culpepper and Kristina Shackelford, are thrilled to be expanding CI’s impact to Clear Lake, League City and Nassau Bay residents.
“The Bay area is a growing community with great things happening, including local business developments, weekly entertainment options, a solid business and chamber community, and a well-respected school district,” Shackelford said. “We at CI are looking forward to working with the variety of communities in the area that are striving to make the region inviting for new residents and businesses alike.”
The new edition will be the 10th Community Impact Newspaper edition distributed in the Houston area. CI also distributes nine editions of the hyperlocal print paper in Central Texas as well as five editions in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
The newspaper reports on local government meetings, transportation projects, development updates, education news, business openings and many more community-interest stories. The paper also offers full-color print advertising space for local business owners.
“In every market, Community Impact brings communities together by letting residents know what is happening in their neighborhood,” Turner said. “When this news comes straight to the mailboxes in the Clear Lake-area community, residents will feel informed and empowered.”
In celebration of the newspaper’s new home, CI will host a launch party and ribbon cutting open to all Clear Lake, League City and Nassau Bay residents and friends of the paper on Aug. 10. Save the date and keep an eye on the CI Clear Lake / League City / Nassau Bay Facebook and Twitter accounts for details and to RSVP.
About Community Impact Newspaper:

The company debuted its new $10 million state-of-the-art printing facility in 2016 next to its headquarters in Pflugerville, Texas.
As other print publications scale back or cut ties altogether, Community Impact Newspaper continues gaining momentum as an information resource to residents. Hyperlocal versions of the newspaper are delivered monthly to more than 2 million homes, and the paper will soon serve new audiences with its edition in Arizona.
