South Padre Island to hold public workshop for community feedback
The city of South Padre Island has been making several changes to accommodate the safety needs of both visitors and residents.
All of this is part of what the city calls the Shorelines Master Plan.
In the last six years, the city has planted one acre of dune vegetation on the island. City Shoreline Director Brandon Hill says it’s necessary for the island to be ready for natural disasters.
"The time to be resilient isn't after the storm has hit you-- it’s before," Hill said.
The city plans to hold a public workshop at City Hall to discuss current and future projects on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
