CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — City Council will mull a resolution which allows the city to swap land with the federal government.
Under the resolution, the city would buy 44 acres along the Oso Creek known as Peary Place from the U.S. Navy for $500,000.
It was paid through a state loan program for military communities.
The city would also give the navy additional clear zone areas near NAS Corpus Christi, Cabaniss Field and Waldron Field.
