City of Bryan’s New Downtown Parking Committee Announced

The City of Bryan’s new ad hoc Downtown Parking Committee’s mission is to gather information, research, and best practices locally and from other urban areas, and provide recommendations to meet the future goals of Historic Downtown Bryan and address the evolving needs of its residents, businesses, and visitors.

The following individuals have agreed to volunteer their time to serve on the committee:

  • Andrew Nelson (Chair), Destination Bryan board member supporting Bryan hotels, hospitality and retail, and former City of Bryan Mayor
  • Wade Beckman, former BCS Chamber of Commerce President and downtown restaurant/retail business owner
  • Nancy Finney, Chief Revenue Officer at Astin Partners, LLC, managing downtown event, retail and business offices
  • Peter Lange, Associate Vice President for Transportation for Texas A&M and office tenant in downtown
  • Bryce Pflughaupt, downtown resident
  • David Posadas, business owner for multiple downtown restaurant/retail/event venues
  • Alex Schulman, business owner for multiple downtown restaurant/retail/events venues
  • Kristi Stark, attorney representing legal offices at multiple downtown locations
  • Blake Zeitman, downtown restaurant/retail business owner

The committee members were selected for their diverse backgrounds, experiences and knowledge, which collectively represent all key private sector stakeholder groups in Downtown Bryan – hospitality, events, restaurants, retail, offices and residents.

“I am confident in the Downtown Parking Committee’s ability to gather pertinent information, generate fresh insights, and provide short, medium and long-term recommendations for the benefit of our entire community,” said Mayor Bobby Gutierrez. “I and the rest of council are giving them space to do their work and have asked for them to publish their findings and recommendations within 6 months.”

Once ready, the committee’s data will be published on the city’s website at where there will be an opportunity for community feedback.

As the committee begins its work, it is important to note that the city will not be available for media interviews until the committee is ready to present its findings.
