Beginning on Tuesday, September 19, City Council and Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones (TIRZ) #2, 3 and 4 meetings will be held at the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority (CCRTA) building located at 602 N. Staples Street. This is directly across the street from City Hall. The move is needed to allow for the renovation of Council Chambers. Please note the following procedural changes:
- Residents can sign up for Public Comment on Mondays and Tuesdays at City Hall in the Atrium and on Tuesdays at the CCRTA building.
- Anyone attending a City Council meeting must go through CCRTA security. Once inside the building, they will be escorted by City security to the 2nd floor of the CCRTA building, where the meetings will be held.
- The CCRTA is considered a private building; therefore, no knives of any size or guns are permitted in the building.
