CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Voters in Corpus Christi have rejected a nearly $45 million bond issue for a planned development known as Destination Bayfront.

The measure that failed Tuesday involved development of 34 acres of public land, including parks and beach, along tourist-popular Shoreline Boulevard. The proposal included a boardwalk, a pier and improvements to the veterans memorial area.

Critics say Corpus Christi leaders should focus on infrastructure repairs before spending money on the economic development project.

Mayor Nelda Martinez says she would have liked approval for Destination Bayfront — but she respects the wishes of voters.
