Gateway Planning, with partners Kimley-Horn and Associates and Dover Kohl and Partners, was hired by the City of South Padre Island to develop a plan to revitalize Padre Boulevard and the Entertainment District. In addition, the team was tasked with developing a form-based code to implement the vision for the Boulevard and the Entertainment District. Through an integrated design process with TxDOT and the City, Gateway Planning created a vision for the boulevard as a true destination street anchoring key nodes of development with bike lanes and on-street parking. The ITE Manual/CNU for Walkable Thoroughfares was used as the guide for engaging TxDOT in the reinvention of Padre Boulevard.
