CORPUS CHRISTI -- It is being called a new era of opportunity for the city of Corpus Christi, with more jobs, more businesses, and more new residents than ever before. But with the opportunity come big questions from city leaders: How shall we grow? What kind of city and community do we want to be, and how do we take steps to achieve our goals?
To answer those questions, the City of Corpus Christi is creating Plan CC, a new 20-year citywide comprehensive plan. Residents, business owners and everyone who cares about Corpus Christi is invited to help shape a vision for the future. The month of June has already seen seven district meetings throughout the city, the launch of a Plan CC website and virtual town hall.
Building on previous initiatives, Plan CC will create a citywide framework for future development that enhances quality of life, establishes long-term economic competitiveness and opportunity for everyone, leverages public and private investment, and strengthens the city's fiscal position. The plan will be focused on implementation from the beginning and based on an understanding of market forces in Corpus Christi. The citywide plan is expected to be completed in early 2015.
A Citywide Forum will be held Saturday, June 28th at the American Bank Center from 9 AM to 1 PM. Everyone is invited to come and hear about the results of the district meetings and will work together to develop a vision and goals for the next five, 10 and 20 years. Parking is free, families are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
