City of Bryan to Unveil Proposed Comprehensive Plan and Parks Master Plan at “Big Reveal” on Aug. 17
The City of Bryan is wrapping up a year-long process of updating the Comprehensive Plan and Parks Master Plan. The City of Bryan invites all citizens and stakeholders to the “Big Reveal” of the proposed Bryan Comprehensive Plan and the Parks Master Plan on Aug. 17, 2016, from 5:00-8:00 PM at the Brazos Center.
The Comprehensive Plan is a long-term guide for the community that defines community values, identifies community opportunities and weaknesses, and provides direction on how and where the community should grow, develop and redevelop. The Parks Master Plan provides guidance on current and future parks and recreation facilities, including ways to enhance existing parks and how to plan for future needs.
A large component of the planning process includes collecting citizen input and working with business owners, developers and City staff to determine existing conditions and areas for improvement. The proposed draft includes the input collected during the public engagement portion of the update and highlights recommendations and actions pertaining to various City policies and programs. Some of the chapters of the Plan include:
- Land Use
- Municipal Services
- Community Appearance
- Parks and Recreation
The “Big Reveal” is a come-and-go style event that includes finger-foods, refreshments and interactive booths describing the various chapters of the plan. Come and see the proposed draft, provide feedback and inquire about the future of Bryan. Both the Comprehensive Plan and the Parks Master Plan are nicknamed Blueprint 2040 because of their impact on the next 20+ years of development in Bryan.
