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:
- Roadway Impact Fees: In the workshop, the council will continue its recent discussions about possible roadway impact fees that would be charged to new development to help pay for growth. A public hearing and formal action are scheduled for Nov. 10.
- Roadway Maintenance Fee: The council will have a workshop discussion on a draft ordinance and options for the roadway maintenance fee that’s included in the FY17 budget.
- Rezoning at Wellborn Road-Harvey Mitchell: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about 71 acres at the southeast corner of the Wellborn Road-Harvey Mitchell Parkway intersection. The change would allow for the development of townhomes, duplexes, and apartments as well as commercial uses.
- Highway 30 Rezoning near Veterans Park: After public hearings, the council will consider changing the land use and zoning designations for about seven acres of Highway 30 frontage across from Veterans Park and Athletic Complex. The changes would allow for commercial development.
- Highway 6 Rezoning north of Fitch: After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to rezone about 58 acres north of Fitch Parkway on the east side of Highway 6. The change would allow for commercial development.
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.
