Five things to watch at Thursday’s city council meetings
Here are five items to watch when the College Station City Council gathers Thursday at city hall for its workshop (6 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings:
- Animal Shelter Agreement: The council will consider an agreement with the Aggieland Humane Society for sheltering services, which are estimated at $194,939 for FY14.
- Northpoint Crossing Traffic Signal: The council will consider an advance funding agreement with the Northpoint Crossing developer for the reconstruction of the traffic signal at University Drive and Texas Avenue. The city would share the cost of the signal project with the developer.
- FM 2818 School Speed Zone: The council will consider adding a 35 mph school zone on FM 2818, Welsh Avenue and Nueces Drive near A&M Consolidated High School. The school zone begins on Welsh and Nueces where the existing 25 mph school zones end and extends along FM 2818 from west of Welsh to east of Nueces.
- FM 2818 Speed Limits: The council will consider reducing the posted speed limit from 60 mph to 55 mph on FM 2818 from a point west of George Bush to just east of Wellborn Road.
- South Knoll Area Neighborhood Plan: After a public hearing, the council will consider approving the South Knoll Area Neighborhood Plan as part of the city’s Comprehensive Plan.
