CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The City of Corpus Christi Planning Department is in the process of designing a new Bayside Area Development Plan.

Popular landmarks in the study area include Six Points, the Port-Ayers commercial area, Del Mar College - Heritage Campus, TAMU-CC, Oso Beach Municipal Golf Course, and Sunrise and La Palmera Malls.

Spanish speakers will be available to answer any questions and collect feedback during the community meeting.
