Accordingly there will be substantial public input prior to construction of the district.

The Resort District borders Commodores Drive, Aquarius Street and portions of the Laguna Madre. A portion of the Resort District fronts on a protected habitat and will be designed to add separation between the protected habitat and the developed property.
