Information
RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider approving the joint Nueces County - City of Corpus Christi Erosion Response Plan for submission to the Texas General Land Office for consideration and public comment.
BACKGROUND
The 81st Texas Legislature amended Chapter 33 of the Texas Natural Resources Code to encourage local governments with jurisdiction of Gulf of Mexico shorelines to adopt an Erosion Response Plan (ERP). The ERP will be used by the Texas General Land Office to qualify local governments for Coastal Erosion Planning and Response Act (CEPRA) grants.

In 2010 the Nueces County Beach Management Advisory Committee began formulating an ERP for Nueces County beaches. In 2011, the Commissioners Court and Corpus Christi City Council agreed that the ERP should be a joint plan for both the City and County to assure continuity and to best serve the public’s wishes.

A joint committee was formed consisting of members of the Nueces County Beach Management Advisory Committee, the Corpus Christi Planning Commission and the Island Strategic Action Committee, and City and County staff. The current draft plan has been approved by the Nueces County Beach Management Advisory Committee. After the Commissioners Court and the City Council approve the ERP, it will be sent to the GLO for review and comment before it is finalized and adopted.
