Why a Corridor Plan?
The City of Corpus Christi anticipates additional residential and commercial development, as well as a new elementary school, in the Northwest Boulevard (FM 624) Corridor. Plans to build a new steel factory in nearby Sinton, Texas, could drive additional demand for new housing and commerce in Calallen.
While new development creates new opportunities for people to live, work and do business in Calallen, it can also bring new challenges, such as more auto traffic, and more demands on critical infrastructure. This planning study represents the City of Corpus Christi’s effort to proactively plan for orderly, attractive and sustainable growth and development consistent with the community’s vision.
