HOA Members: Kings Crossing Park Upgrades Tabled for Now

CORPUS CHRISTI -- The annual meeting for Kings Crossing homeowners had a somewhat controversial item on the agenda.

That item was about St Denis Park, a public piece of land that the association board wants to spend $2.2 million in upgrades on.

But some of the homeowners who pay dues to the association say that's an expense they don't want and one that no one asked them about.

It looks like this is an option that really isn't even feasible. Organizers proposing the plan want to make part of the facility open only to HOA members, problem is it's a public park.

The plans cost the association $7,500 to draw up.

They include a rec center, a pool, tennis courts and a new jungle gym for the kids, under this proposal, the jungle gym would be open to the public, but not other facilities. We're told that members at tonight's meeting say the city may want to sell the park.

That's not what Parks and Rec managers told us earlier this week, we couldn't call them tonight for comment. Some who live nearby say the park is fine just the way it is.

"I think if you look at the homeowners association, who runs that, they're the ones that are more interested than the people who actually live here," Delfino Mendoza.

Board President John Valls initially invited us to the meeting, but we were asked to leave before that item came up on the agenda.

But members in attendance tell KRIS 6 News the idea is tabled for now. They say the board said the increase, if the park passes, would be at least $130 a year in dues.
