City Hosts Second Community Workshop for Midtown

Midtown Water Tower

The City of Bryan will present several concepts for discussion and feedback regarding the Midtown district at a community workshop. We invite you to join us on Thursday, February 21st, at 5:30 PM at Harmony Science Academy in Bryan to offer your input as part of the ongoing planning process.

  • WHAT: Bryan Midtown Development – 2nd Community Workshop
  • WHEN: Thursday, February 21st – 5:30 PM
  • WHERE: Harmony Science Academy Gym – 2031 Texas Avenue in Bryan

General plan principles derived from numerous stakeholder meetings, community work sessions and members of the Midtown Planning Area Committee (MPAC) were developed by City of Bryan staff and the supporting consultant team. These principles will help structure the more detailed elements of the plan and include:

  • FOSTER COMPLETE NEIGHBORHOODS: Cultivate connected and safe neighborhoods with convenient access to the goods and services that meets the needs of all ages and abilities and includes a wide variety of housing options.
  • COMPATIBLE INFILL: Neighborhood infill should focus on context appropriate, small and medium scale residential attached housing, and must be compatible with adjacent structures.
  • ENHANCE EXISTING ASSETS: Reuse existing structures whenever possible
  • COORDINATED DEVELOPMENT: Align City of Bryan municipal investment with strategies that foster appropriate private development to ensure projects maximize taxpayer returns

Background

Boundaries of the Midtown area include South Texas Avenue and Finfeather Road from the Bryan/College Station City limit line to the revitalized historic Downtown, a Texas Cultural District. Midtown is a premiere landscape that can accommodate growing demand for quality housing, commercial services, restaurants and entertainment offerings while enhancing the existing neighborhood fabric along this important corridor.

Once finalized, this plan will serve as the principle guide in helping strengthen the future of the Midtown area by promoting orderly growth, development and redevelopment. Recommendations may include changes to standard zoning districts and the creation of new districts to help maximize the areas potential while enhancing the quality of life for the surrounding neighborhoods.

The study area includes approximately two-square miles of area surrounding the Travis B. Bryan Municipal Park from Downtown Bryan to the city limits shared with the City of College Station, generally bounded by Finfeather Road to the west and South College Avenue to the east.
