Here are five items to watch:
1. Electric Power Update
The council will hear an update on the city’s electric power supply and service issues heading into the winter. Winter Storm URI in 2021 raised concerns about the ERCOT transmission grid’s ability to handle another extreme storm and led to new distribution system requirements.
2. Water Supply Update
The council will be updated about the city’s water supply and wastewater treatment capacity, including projected system demands and plans for future supplies and treatment capacity.
3. Business Center Property
The council will consider a contract selling about five acres in the College Station Business Center near State Highway 6 and Venture Drive. The purchaser plans a $1.45 million development with corporate, medical, and professional uses.
4. Middle Housing Zoning
After a public hearing, the council will consider a middle housing zoning district that allows options such as duplexes, townhouses, small and medium multiplexes, courtyard houses, and small-lot single-family developments. The proposal includes changes reflecting feedback from public engagement and previous council workshops.
5. ROO Changes
After a public hearing, the council will consider Restricted Occupancy Overlay changes to streamline the neighborhood application process. In August, the council directed staff to revise the ordinance to allow multiple contiguous phases of original subdivisions to apply jointly, submit one application, and pay one fee.
