Site of development

The site of Fulton Beach Landings is at the corner of Fulton Beach Road and SH 35 N. The development will have 41 lots.

Aransas County commissioners, at their regular meeting Monday, Jan. 10, unanimously approved the Final Plat of Fulton Beach Landings, Unit 1 at 2261 N. Fulton Beach Rd. from Richy Ethridge’s Lets Go to the Islands. The new development includes all but the frontage property on the south side of Fulton Beach Road (across from HEB’s compound), east of SH 35 N.

The developer paid for the extension of water, sewer, and natural gas service.

Some questions were raised about the lack of a tree survey.

Commissioner Wendy Laubach said most trees in that area are located along SH 35, and not included in the platted area in question.

County Development Services Coordinator Katherine A. Comeaux said there were no trees on that property that met the “protected” threshold when the concept plan was brought to commissioners for approval.

Laubach also noted the developer took out a few lots (from 51, down to about 41).

Engineer Brandi Karl, addressing concerns about the size of the cul-de-sac, said it has a 50-foot radius, which is what is required.

Comeaux noted since the development is a Planned Unit Development (PUD), and the developer is providing utilities, the developer will get his permits from the City.

“Is there anything about this development that would raise eyebrows if it wasn’t a PUD?” asked Laubach.

Comeaux responded, “As long as the developer makes the development safe, there’s not much the county can do.

“Because of the utility extension, it’s probably one of the most environmentally friendly developments we (County) have.”
