CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - The City of Corpus Christi Planning Department is creating a new Bayside Area Development Plan. The community is invited to an open house to give feedback on the plan’s vision themes and policy initiatives and give insight into local area matters.

This plan will guide future development, programs, and public investment in Bayside neighborhoods and will be based on public input.

The Bayside study area covers 16 square miles between South Padre Island Drive (SH 358) and Ocean Drive, between the Oso Bay and the Crosstown Expressway (SH 286), and as far north as Morgan Avenue. Popular landmarks in the study area include Six Points, the Port-Ayers commercial area, Del Mar College - Heritage Campus, TAMU-CC, Oso Beach Municipal Golf Course, and Sunrise and La Palmera Malls.

Staff, including Spanish speakers, will be available to answer questions and collect feedback during the community meeting.

Members of the public are also invited to view meeting materials available on the project website, beginning February 24.

Reasonable accommodations are provided upon request and per the Americans with Disabilities Act. Please call (361) 826-1614 at least 48 hours in advance for assistance or to request a reasonable accommodation.
