If you’re looking for a new furry friend, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to find them. The Bryan Animal Center is participating in the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative, which helps find loving homes for every animal in the shelter.
The City of Bryan is looking for more input and discussion regarding the future of the Midtown district at a community workshop. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, April 30, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at The Brazos Center in Bryan to offer your input as the team reveals the results from the input meeting in February and seeks more input on new items.
- WHAT: Bryan Midtown Development – Third Community Workshop
- WHEN: Tuesday, April 30 – 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
- WHERE: The Brazos Center – 3232 Briarcrest Drive in Bryan
At the workshop, we will hold a short presentation summarizing the last eight months of progress. This includes changes to the “Experience Districts” based on public input and information about incremental development. After this short presentation, attendees will be able to filter in to round tables led by table facilitators to give more input.
The Midtown Area Plan will offer guidance on how development in the Midtown Area will grow and change. This can include design standards, additions to zoning, corridor beautification, and new opportunities for infill development. The team has created general plan principles derived from numerous stakeholder meetings, community work sessions and members of the Midtown Planning Area Committee (MPAC), which include the following key goals:
- 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
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. 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 Texas Avenue to the east.
