Help shape the future of Calallen’s Northwest Boulevard! The City of Corpus Christi has kicked off the Northwest Boulevard (FM 624) Corridor Plan. This initiative will influence future development projects and public investments in the Northwest Boulevard Corridor for years to come.
About the Project
The City of Corpus Christi is working with urban planning consultants from Asakura Robinson to create a plan that will guide future development in the area and identify opportunities to improve Northwest Boulevard. The plan will include conceptual drawings and implementation strategies to bring the ideas in the plan to reality. The community’s input is needed to create the plan, and the community will have several opportunities to participate, including online surveys and two public meetings. The nearly three-mile study area comprises a 500-foot buffer to the north and south of Northwest Boulevard from Interstate 69 to Wright Moravek Road (County Road 73).

Why a Corridor Plan?
The City of Corpus Christi anticipates additional residential and commercial development, as well as a new elementary school, in the Northwest Boulevard (FM 624) Corridor. Plans to build a new steel factory in nearby Sinton, Texas, could drive additional demand for new housing and commerce in Calallen.
While new development creates new opportunities for people to live, work and do business in Calallen, it can also bring new challenges, such as more auto traffic, and more demands on critical infrastructure. This planning study represents the City of Corpus Christi’s effort to proactively plan for orderly, attractive and sustainable growth and development consistent with the community’s vision.
