Westside Community Meeting and Open House

Help shape your community! The City of Corpus Christi is currently working with the Freese and Nichols planning team to create a new Westside Area Development Plan. The plan will give guidance for future development in the Westside and identify opportunities for the improvement of existing facilities.

We invite you to participate in the upcoming community meeting and open house to help create a vision for the future of the Westside and to identify the area’s strengths and challenges. Pop in briefly or stay the entire time – you can give your thoughts and ideas at any point during the event. Freese and Nichols will introduce the project and explain the process during a short presentation at 6:00 p.m. and staff will be available from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. to listen to your ideas and answer any of your questions. Your feedback will guide the plan’s recommendations, including policies, future development, and infrastructure investments for the Westside.
