Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb has announced that the 58h annual Texas Jazz Festival will remain at Heritage Park.

On Monday afternoon, Texas Jazz Festival organizers announced they were going to move to a new location this year.

Texas Jazz Festival President Emilio Reyes says the festival has outgrown Heritage Park and there are certain stipulations set by the city that festival organizers could not meet.

An emergency meeting between festival organizers and city officials was held this morning to address concerns for the upcoming festival.

This is a developing story, and more information will be reported as it becomes available.
