Corpus Christi, TX, amends municipal code, removes vacant commercial property registration requirement

Corpus Christi, TX: The amended version of the City’s downtown vacant property regulation ordinance is in effect, as of October.

The amendments to the ordinance remove the requirements for owners of vacant commercial property in the Downtown area to register the properties; that change also removes any fee schedule for registration.

The City will still send notifications or inquiries to owners, and request inspections, to assess the vacancy situation and communicate plans for occupying and/or rehabilitation of the property.

Owners will also still be required to maintain properties in accordance with all City ordinances, to respond to all notifications from the City for violations or requests for information, and subject to fines and penalties for noncompliance with maintenance and information request requirements.
