SWG-2012-00963 - Clayton's Beach Bar and Grill - Cameron County

Published June 2, 2015
Expiration date: 7/2/2015

Full Public Notice     Project Plans

The applicant proposes to amend Department of the Army Permit SWG-2012-00963 issued on 4 February 2015 (expires 31 December 2020).  The applicant has previously been authorized to construct a wooden, elevated pier extending from Clayton’s Beach Bar and Grill’s deck into the Gulf of Mexico.  The project involved the construction (no construction has commenced as of the date of this public notice) of a 15-foot-wide by 950-foot-long pier atop pilings spaced 12 feet apart for spans one and two (starting at the existing bulkhead), 16 feet for spans three to 13 and 12 feet apart for the remainder of pilings into the Gulf of Mexico.

Along the length of the pier, beginning approximately 200 feet from its origin, the applicant has been authorized to construct a 35- by 100-foot covered concession area.  The pier will be constructed 20 feet above Mean Low Tide and terminate with a 25- by 50-foot L-head.  The applicant wishes to amend that authorization to include:

1.  Relocation of the pier approximately 180 feet south of the current authorized location on property owned by Mr. Brashear.  NOTE: A bulkhead project has been previously verified by the Texas General Land Office (TGLO) and Mr. Brashear is currently obtaining the necessary permits from the City of South Padre Island to construct the bulkhead;

2.  Addition of center pilings for the length of the pier for improved structural strength (engineer recommendation);

3.  The addition of a 50- by 50-foot “T”-head instead of the previously authorized 25- by 50-foot “L”-head;

4.  Expansion of the concession area from the previously authorized 35- by 100-foot plus 15-foot pier width (having a total footprint of 50- by 100-foot) to a covered concession area measuring 45- by 100-foot plus the 15-foot pier width (totaling a 60- by 100-foot concession area).  Total area of proposed pier including concession area and “T” head will be 21,250-square-feet or 0.49-acres.
