The College Station City Council gathers Thursday at city hall for its workshop (about 5 p.m.) and regular (6 p.m.) meetings.

Here are five items to watch:

  1. City Hall Groundbreaking: Before the workshop, the council will participate in a 3 p.m. groundbreaking ceremony for the new city hall in the parking lot south of the existing building. The project is expected to be finished in 2022.
  2. Traffic Contact Report: In the workshop, the Police Department will present its annual Traffic Contact Report. Compiled by an independent consultant, the report found the department employs best practices and complies with state law.
  3. Gateway Zoning Overlays: Another workshop item is a discussion about zoning overlays and other tools to aesthetically enhance key city entryways.
  4. BV African American Museum: In the regular meeting, Mayor Karl Mooney will issue a proclamation recognizing the Brazos Valley African American Museum‘s leadership as a part of African American History Month.
  5. Hands-Free Ordinance: The council will consider an ordinance amendment requiring hands-free use to talk on communication devices while operating a motor vehicle or bicycle.
