SWG-2006-00026 - Tarpon Shores Marina - Nueces County

Expiration date: 5/22/2013

Full Public Notice     Project Plans     Mitigation Plan

The previous owner of the property placed unauthorized fill in 1.75 acres of the subject property’s 10.43-acre area.  The applicant is seeking an after-the-fact authorization to retain a portion (0.59 acre) of unauthorized fill material placed by the previous owner and authorization for additional fill to accommodate a proposed cottage development.  The remaining areas of unauthorized fill (1.16 acre) would be restored and enhanced from its previous condition.  The restoration involves construction of circulation channels to provide tidally- influenced low marsh and high marsh habitat.  In addition to retaining fill and restoring the site, the applicant proposes to construct nine (9) cottages adjacent to the Aransas Pass Tributary Channel shoreline and southeast of the existing Tarpon Shores Marina.  The cottages will be constructed on 9 platted lots with habitat currently characterized as unvegetated sand flats, and high marsh with adjacent low marsh.  Cottage construction would include the addition of 9 concrete-based, pier and beam cottages, each with a building area ranging from 3,230 to 3,518 square feet.  The proposed new impacts total 0.43 acres for all 9 lots.  The development's deed restrictions will limit each cottage footprint to 1,750 square feet, thus restricting the amount of impervious surface on each lot (approximately 0.36 acre for all 9 lots).  Each cottage lot will be accessed through Nueces County right-of-way (ROW) from the Old Nueces County Road.
