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 6 p.m.) and regular (7 p.m.) meetings. Here are five items to watch:
- Gateway Monument: As part of the consent agenda, the council will consider an agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation for the city to build a gateway monument at the intersection of State Highway 6 and University Drive.
- University Drive Rezoning: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about a half-acre at the intersection of University Drive and Eisenhower Street to allow for the development of a restaurant.
- Luther Street Planned Development: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about 4.3 acres near the intersection of Wellborn Road and Luther Street as a Planned Development District to allow the development of multi-family housing and a restaurant.
- MUD Strategic Partnership: This item is the first of two public hearings required for a strategic partnership agreement with Brazos County Municipal Utility District (MUD) No. 1, which was created in 2014 for property that currently includes the Texas World Speedway. The agreement outlines the terms and conditions for annexing the MUD.
- Comp Plan Annexation Amendment: After a public hearing, the council will consider amending the city’s Comprehensive Plan to include recommendations from the Annexation Task Force regarding the timing, priorities, and phasing of annexations.
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.
