CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Homelessness and crime were just some of the many topics that Flour Bluff citizens council addressed during their first meeting of the year.

That meeting was held at the Grace Community Church.

They were hearing from residents about the most pressing needs in their community.

The council also introduced a new campaign called "Respect Flour Bluff.”

It’s meant to instill pride in that part of our community.

“It's about those of us who are citizens in Flour Bluff respecting the authorities, the policy makers, all of those people who help us do what we need to do,” said Shirley Thornton, president of the Flour Bluff Citizens Council. “And it’s about asking people just to remember, with our shirts that's our little reminder, that we all have a responsibility to take care of this community. To respect her.”

The Corpus Christi city manager and chief of police were there, as were a few city council members.
