The Corpus Christi City Council must VOTE For the Grand Canal before December 10th!
Not voting is simply a "No Vote." Don't let the council members delay and still say they support the idea - it is time to vote before December 10th!
We are helping the City of Corpus Christi improve drainage in an often flooded North Beach with the Grand Canal. Building the Grand Canal draws in tens of millions in private investment and creates a place we can all embrace our cultural heritage, be proud of, and see what the Future has in store for us in the Coastal Bend!
There is another utility project in Texas that generates revenue for the city, excitement in the community, and tells people we CAN make great things happen; the San Antonio Riverwalk.
1) The Grand Canal helps with the drainage and constant flooding on North Beach.
2) The Grand Canal tells young people we have something exciting, vibrant, and Forward Thinking in our very near Future. Stay in or Move back to Corpus Christi!
3) The Grand Canal pays for itself in 10 years! A drainage ditch doesn't. It's that simple.
4) How about a WIN for our community? Solve problems and generate excitement where 800,000+ people already visit the Texas State Aquarium & USS Lexington - No Brainer!

The City has asked Mr. Frazier if he could wait 1 more day until Dec 10th so the City Council wouldn't have to call a Special Meeting. We may see a VOTE on the Grand Canal on December 10th!

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell is a book about how small actions at the right time, in the right place, and with the right people can create a "Tipping point."
We are above 750 signatures in just a few days! With such a strong response, we hope you don't mind we increase our Goal up to 5,000. Let's keep the great momentum!

We've heard the City is now scheduling a "Workshop" on Tuesday, Dec 3rd. Perhaps a Tipping Point?
