5 things to watch at Thursday’s city council meetings
By Colin Killian, Public Communications Manager
The College Station City Council gathers Thursday at city hall for its workshop (about 5:30 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings. Here are five items to watch:
- Sports Tourism: In the workshop, the council will hear a presentation from the B-CS Convention and Visitor’s Bureau on a consultant’s report addressing the area’s existing and future sports tourism industry.
- Lick Creek Nature Center: As part of the consent agenda, the council will consider a $2.1 million construction contract for the Lick Creek Nature Center in Lick Creek Park. The project was approved by voters in 2008.
- Recycling Agreement: The council will consider the final reading of a franchise agreement with Brazos Valley Trash Valet & Recycling for collecting recyclables from businesses and apartment complexes.
- Victoria-Fitch Rezoning: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about 20 acres northeast of the Fitch Parkway-Victoria Avenue intersection. The proposal would revise the allowed commercial uses and increase the number of multi-family structures.
- Graham-Longmire Rezoning: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about 11 acres near the southwest corner of the Graham Road-Longmire Drive intersection to allow the development of townhomes, duplexes and apartments.
The meetings can be watched live on Suddenlink Ch. 19, or online. The website includes an archive of previous council meetings. We’ll post a detailed live blog on this site.
