The City of Corpus Christi invites the public to review and comment between July 6 and July 20 on a second draft of Plan CC, the Cityís new 20-year comprehensive plan. The document can be found on the Plan CC website, www.plancc2035.com, and in public libraries. As a result of public comments received in May and June on the first draft, the City revised the draft plan for adoption to focus the planís content on the broader vision, goals and policies contained within the first draft. The second draft plan also continues to include a Future Land Use Map for each area of the City. As the Cityís comprehensive plan, Plan CC is intended to guide growth and development over the next 20 years and was developed during more than a year of analysis, special studies, meetings, and public participation.

The first draft of Plan CC was made available for review and comment on the project website and in public libraries between May 9 and June 19. A document containing all public comments on the first draft is available on the project website. In addition, a summary of this first round of public comments related only to the goals and policies has also been posted to the project website. Comments on the second draft of Plan CC received by July 20 will be similarly documented.

Public hearings on the second draft of Plan CC are anticipated to be held at the Planning Commission meeting on August 12 and at the City Council meeting on October 13. The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council on adoption of the plan, and may suggest changes. In its deliberations on the plan, the City Council may accept or reject any changes proposed by the Planning Commission and propose its own changes when voting on adoption of the plan.

The City encourages everyone to comment on the second draft of Plan CC by July 20th. The public may submit comments in several ways:

Comments will be accepted online or by email, fax, phone, and letter through Monday, July 20, for inclusion in a matrix of comments and responses that will be posted on the website and submitted to the Planning Commission and the City Council.
