JOINT LAND USE STUDY
On September 23, 2013, the City Council adopted the NAS Corpus Christi Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) as an element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The purpose of the JLUS is to identify goals, policies and implementation strategies necessary to achieve greater land use compatibility surrounding the Navy airports: Truax Field (NAS-CC), Waldron, and Cabaniss air fields. Corpus Christi International Airport (CCIA) was also included in the JLUS as the City allows Navy aviators to train at CCIA.
In May 2011, the United States Navy presented the Corpus Christi City Council with their Air Installations Compatible Land Use Zones (AICUZ) Study for NAS Corpus Christi. The Navy Study provided an update to the original AICUZ study completed in 1977, which identified noise and accident potential areas beyond the ends of the runways at each of the Navy’s airports.
A JOINT EROSION RESPONSE PLAN (ERP) FOR NUECES COUNTY AND THE CITY OF CORPUS CHRISTI
Chapter 15 of the Texas Natural Resources code encourages local governments that contain Gulf of Mexico public or private beaches to prepare an Erosion Response Plan for submittal to the Texas General Land Office (TXLGO). The TXGLO adopted rules specifying the requirements that may be considered when developing an Erosion Response Plan. Additionally, the rules established the dates for submittal of the ERP to the TXGLO in order for the ERP to be considered for each Coastal Erosion Planning and Response Act (CEPRA) Grants. A Draft Joint Nueces County Erosion Response Plan was submitted to the TXGLO in June 2012. After approval by the Texas General Land Office, the Erosion Response Plan became a rule of law on February 26, 2013.
Adopted by Ordinance 029541, with a delayed effective date of February 26, 2013, the plan generally applies to the Mustang and North Padre Island shoreline areas located 1,000 feet landward of mean high tide along the Gulf of Mexico within city limits and the City’s Extraterritorial Jurisdiction.
