Experts with the Urban Land Institute brought up three major topics to keep Port Aransas thriving;  boating, housing, and tourism.

Ideas to help make the town more tourist friendly include adding signage to let visitors know where they are and a bus or trolley system equipped with a mobile app so guests will know what routes to take.  ​

The experts also believe the city should add two conventional hotels which would help visitors who have limited lodging options at the moment.

Some city leaders had their concerns with the proposals such as staffing and funding.
