> Clayton’s Beach Bar & Grill Fishing Pier Project Underway

Clayton Breasher, owner of Clayton's Beach Bar & Grill on South Padre Island, says he's excited as his highly anticipated fishing pier project moves forward.

In 2016, Basher announced an expansion of his beach venue that would include a fishing pier.

Brashear says visiting several piers throughout the country is what convinced him to build his very own, with the overall goal of creating business year-round for the island.

Something the city has supported since the start.

"The idea is that it'll bring more tourism to the South Padre Island, " Brashear said.

At the moment, Brashear is in the engineering phase of the project. Once that is completed, he will take it to the city for approval before moving on to the construction phase.

South Padre Island City Manager Susan Guthrie says since the announcement, city staff has helped with area zoning and annexing to help get that approved.

"In terms of what the city needs to do, we have done all of our processes," Guthrie said. "When [Brashear] actually goes to start building, he'll need to put a building permit. But, other than that his work with the city is pretty much wrapped up."

Not all are in favor of the project, as some are concerned about trash, shoreline erosion and possible shark attacks.

However, the city has conducted research and assures residents and visitors that this will be a postie asset to the island.

> Cameron County Breaks Ground on Amphitheater, Multipurpose Building

Officials from around Cameron County gathered Wednesday at Isla Blanca Park for the groundbreaking of new facilities that are slated to open by late summer.

The $6.2 million project, funded through the county’s hotel and car rental taxes, includes an amphitheater that will seat 4,000 and a 6,800-square-foot multipurpose building.

“When this park is renovated and updated, there won’t be a park in the country more beautiful,” County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr. said.

The amphitheater will provide an ideal view to watch SpaceX rocket launches, like the one Tuesday, that take place on Boca Chica Beach, Precinct 1 Commissioner Sofia Benavides said.

“As God would have it, we have Isla Blanca Park right across the ship channel,” she said.

County Parks Director Joe Vega said the multipurpose building will have audio and video equipment and will seat up to 250 people.

Also in Isla Blanca Park, the county will spend $17 million in gulf-side improvements and $13 million is RV site improvements, Trevino said. The parks department is wrapping up $3.5 million in upgrades at EK Atwood Park.
