Special to the PRESS

On Jan. 4, the South Padre Island City Council took steps to assess enhancements along Gulf Boulevard on the Island. The city and Gulf Boulevard Action Group took measures to improve parking and safety alongside the present Gulf Boulevard located alongside the shore.

Many people have brought forth their issues to the city regarding improvements they would like to see, one being parking.

The city wants to see growth within tourism, especially after their notable downtime and their downfall in the local economy within the past year, which the city believes was caused by the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill.
