3. Wellborn Plan Update

The council will discuss the ongoing update to the Wellborn District Plan, including goal language and the planning boundary. The plan’s two goals are to preserve the Wellborn area’s rural character to promote a safe, efficient, and connected mobility system. 

4. Impact Fee Rates

The council will consider revisions to the city’s collection rates for water, wastewater, and roadway impact fees

5. EMS Automatic/Mutual Aid

The council will consider an interlocal agreement with the City of Bryan for fire and EMS automatic and mutual aid. The deal reduces Bryan’s reliance on College Station’s EMS resources and provides an annual payment of $550 per EMS run for the difference between aid given and received.
