To address the council about any item on the workshop or regular agenda, you must register with the city secretary by 3 p.m. or call 979-764-3500 and provide your name and phone number. Written comments will be provided to the council members.
Here are five items to watch:
1. Heat Island Effect
The council will discuss the economic impact of using vegetation, such as tree canopies, to reduce the heat island effect. Heat islands are urbanized areas that tend to have higher temperatures than other areas.
2. Lick Creek Park Bird Blinds
The council will discuss the possible installation of bird blinds in Lick Creek Park.
3. FY 21 Budget Amendment
After a public hearing, the council will consider a $570,000 amendment to the city’s FY 21 budget to cover expenses related to pool damage from Winter Storm Uri and an increase in roadway repair costs.
4. Easement Abandonments
After a public hearing, the council will consider abandoning three unneeded easements in the Science Park Subdivision on State Highway 6 to allow for development.
5. Graham Road Land Use/Rezoning
After a public hearing, the council will consider a request to change the land use from Suburban Commercial to Urban and the zoning from Rural to Planned Development District for about 10 acres at 1660 Graham Road. The proposed changes would allow the development of attached low-to-medium density single-family townhomes.
