The Undersigned North Beach property owners, businesses and residents hereby request that the Corpus Christi City Council review and reject what we believe to be the incorrect professional staff interpretation of the building permit applications filed in a FEMA floodplain for improvements to 5 ground-level, substandard structures at 4513 Gulfbreeze Blvd.

Reason

We believe that city staff's acceptance of the unrealistically low projected costs submitted for the extensive renovations was a mistake. Allowing this project to move forwards will endanger property values and public safety in our city's prime tourist area, a neighborhood that has experienced a recent surge in both public and private investment.
Furthermore, allowing blighted structures to be completely rebuilt at ground level is completely contrary to the City of Corpus Christi's master plan for the redevelopment of North Beach. In fact it undermines that plan.

Thank you for your support, North Beach Community Association from Corpus Christi

  • Hi folks,
    Thanks for signing the petition. Wanted to provide an update on the Helicopter issue.
    The latest we've heard from the city is that the helicopter touring company "Redline" corpusheli.com/ has not applied for TIRZ funding yet and has not received permits yet. We have filed a FOIA request to track those documents.
    However, the owner told a KRIS reporter recently that, although his license for offering tours from the CC Airport has expired, he is still pursuing the goal of taking off and landing at the old Stripes station on North Beach, as well as at the Mustang Beach Airport.
    Please continue to help us share the link to this petition so we can gather more signatures, as we will eventually present them to the North Beach TIRZ... further

  • Our group of 17 concerned North Beach home owners stand in City Council Chambers while Ron Graban delivers our petition of 75 signatures to Mayor Guajardo and City Council. We're asking the Council to review and revoke the floodplain permits for 4513 Gulfbreeze due to the project not staying under the 50% threshold that FEMA sets for all remodels in a Zone VE. Once a project goes over 50%, it needs to be brought up to all current codes, including elevating the structures to 11 feet above sea level.

  • On February 13, 17 concerned citizens attended City Council to deliver the peittion asking the Council to revoke the floodplain permits issued for 4513 Gulfbreeze. The petition had 75 signatures.

Not yet a PRO argument.
