What are your thoughts on the proposed plans? I keep hearing on the Lago show complaints about the proposed apartments. Let the opinions fly.

Also, any info on the north beach plan?

I'm all for the development. Apartments included. that's the only way to create a vibrant downtown. More residential. It doesn't mean it will be off limits to the public. Why not let people enjoy a beautiful view from their bedroom window? It sure beats the empty parking lot that's there now. Who uses that? People need to quit complaining and support our elected officials. They need to quit trying to be a road block to everything. Jim Lago show is famous that.

what is the time frame for development? It is a beautiful area and could mean wonders for the downtown.

These are good ideas, if Corpus was a more viable community. I've seen the renderings and it looks like once again, someone is aiming in the wrong direction. As usual, the plans are gaudy and way too jrastic. Frankly, the Bass Pro shop idea was the best by far. It could be a retail anchor that would be a draw for all of South Texas. The increased traffic would bring people to the area and be a boon for everything else.

If the anchor is an ice skating rink, then it's quite a sad idea. Give the entire thing to a commercial developer and let them put something realistic and cool in there.

Although I agree that an ice rink as the anchor is not a big draw and the bass pro shop would have been better for the city, that ship has come and gone. Based on the city council decision for Brass(the ice rink) I think their plan is unique and exciting. Just think about it, shops, restaurants, movie theater, ice rink all in the same area. Nights where there is an ice rays game the place would be jumping. Add in a luxury apartment and it would easily become a very trendy area. A place where locals could go and enjoy our mild climate and nice evening breeze. I am afraid that there will be a few of the same folks who do not want any growth and be negative about the entire project. Think Landry's. BTW Landry's developed Kemah with a ferris wheel(the straw that broke the camels back for our Landry's project) and take a look at that place.

I support the plan over LETTING THE DAMN THING ROT IN PLACE. So, yeah, bring it on....

And I for one am relieved that the Bass Pro Shop fell through. That's not at all what we need downtown, IMO. Entertainment, restaurants, residential, NOT retail.

CC's city leaders are a bunch of idiots. There goes another opportunity for the city.

Yeah--now they're back on the swim center. The same swim center they didn't pick the first time because they've never actually built a swim center anywhere....

Another agreement on the idiots part.
