It would be awesome if Barisi village happened. To actually have an urban, pedestrian friendly area of CC, let alone an area that could be considered a Little Italy, would be awesome. It would be a unique experience for residents and tourists alike and something unique not only to CC, but to the entire state.
Not the state. There are other faux village developments in Texas:

Westlake's Granada and Entrada developments in Dallas–Fort Worth and the Croatian Village in McKinney.

Adriatica Village - Home

The Little Alsace in Castroville is organic as is Fredericksburg . . .and what are those Little Italian people going to eat, surly not hill country products.

A faux Little Italy in a town with a real Little Mexico? Gondoliers wearing broad-brimmed sombreros singing rancheros, not exactly in harmony or keeping with the surroundings. Remember that Sesame Street song "One of these things is not like the other"?

Meanwhile, there are potholes to fill, North beach-walk to repair and tickets and fines to mine from the residents:

I'll just leave this here to point out that not everyone has the same opinions as some vocal posters.

Corpus Christi Residents Speak to City Council About Selling Off - KiiiTV.com South Texas, Corpus Christi, Coastal Bend

The Public Trust is a legal doctrine founded in recognition that some public assets are so valuable to the health and equity of society that they cannot be sold or given away. Instead, this historic legal framework provides that they be managed in trust for the benefit of all people for all time. Land set aside for parks and open space is not an extension of a government's bank account or institution's line of credit. It is placed in a public trust to be enjoyed by current and future generations forever.

Old building. Costs too much to keep up. Fragmented medical system. One large hospital would provide better care than several smaller hospitals. Lots of studies show the more you do something, the better you are at it. For heart attacks and more, big ERs thump small ones - TheIndyChannel.com

Presumably to make some money from selling them, and to stop spending money on the upkeep.

Most of those parks are small and don't have any amenities. The idea is to sell them and concentrate on the bigger, more popular parks.

Barisi Village is one step closer to becoming a reality.

It looks like we could see construction begin on this by the beginning of the year.

This started coming in the mail in the last few months. Pretty good production value compared to what I'm used to in CC.
