SWG-2000-02743 - Gulf Shores Joint Venture - Nueces County

Published Oct. 7, 2014
Expiration date: 11/7/2014

Full Public Notice    Project Plans    

The applicant proposes to redesign and complete the construction of the previously authorized, and partially completed, residential and commercial development, called Lake Padre Subdivision.  This subdivision has been previously permitted as Department of the Army (DA) Permit 17760, and then permit SWG-2000-02743.  The applicant proposes to construct a canal-type connection (instead of culverts) between Lake Padre and the existing canal at Cruiser Street (covered by DA Permit 9009).  The canal type connection would extend under Park Road 22, along Padre Isles Golf Course, and connect to the existing canal along Cruiser Street.  The applicant states this canal is an improved connection, as compared to the culvert-type connection under the prior permit, because it would increase the cross-sectional area and circulation potential by a factor of 3.5 and lead to the enhancement of water circulation within both Lake Padre and the canal system to the west of Park Road 22.  The applicant is proposing to construct two bridges (one northbound, one southbound) within the existing right-of-way of Park Road 22 (which is TXDOT owned) which are necessary to allow the passage of the canal beneath Park Road 22.  The applicant states the bridge and canal system are elements of the City of Corpus Christi’s transportation plan for North Padre Island.  Finally, the applicant proposes to complete the dredging of Lake Padre, as well as the filling of adjacent lands as shown in project plans.
