The City of Corpus Christi has contracted with Pape-Dawson Engineers to begin master planning for water, wastewater, stormwater, and roadways and will conduct impact fee studies for the City to more effectively provide regional improvement projects and balance costs associated with new developments.
As the 8th largest city in Texas, Corpus Christi foresees continuous growth. Throughout the United States, impact fees have become an important method to finance infrastructure and are essential for local governments to fund public services and capital improvements. The City considers an update to its utility and roadway master plans crucial to grow and sustain safe, reliable, and high-quality infrastructure for its residents and visitors. Through collaboration with Pape-Dawson, Raftelis, and community stakeholders, the City will undertake an evaluation of impact fees for the future.
“We are excited to work on this project and serve as a partner to the City as we work to mix the great history of Corpus Christi with the promising growth potential,” says Kim Keefer, P.E., Managing Vice President, Water/Wastewater Infrastructure. “These studies will greatly impact the future of Corpus Christi as they will allow the City to initiate new utility infrastructure and set new standards.”
Pape-Dawson has seven offices across the state and has a long-standing investment in Texas infrastructure.
