Group Continues Mission to Improve Neighborhoods

CORPUS CHRISTI - After defeating Destination Bayfront, the folks with Neighborhoods First said they didn't intend to slack off.

The group took some of their latest ideas to the city council on Tuesday.

In their proposal, members urge the city to take care of critical infrastructure needs like street repair and sewage treatment before asking for millions in beauty projects.

The group is asking the city to take $1.8 million from the Shoreline Project and use that for improvements to Sherrill Park and McGee Beach.

"We're asking the Destination Bayfront folks to join in with us and to try to help us raise individual and corporate contributions for other amenities at the park. There's no reason not to have a nice park down there," John Kelley, president of Neighborhoods First, told KRIS 6 News.

"If we create a park that's easy to access, and comfortable to use, then people will feel good about it. The Bayfront is a natural wonder. We can't improve on what Mother Nature made, but we can make it comfortable and accessible to use."

The group says improvements to the Bayfront can be done, but for a much cheaper price.
