The city of Bryan is redeveloping an area of town and you have the chance to influence the outcome. The Bryan Midtown project will stretch down South College Avenue over to Finfeather Road, and cut off at the Bryan College Station city limit and historic Downtown Bryan.
As the city of Bryan moves deeper into their planning stages, they remain eager for community input. Telling a story and giving the people of B/CS a unique place to enjoy is the picture city of Bryan Assistant Director of Development Martin Zimmermann and Principal and CEO of Velocity Group Daniel Hintz are trying to paint.
“There are places that are kind of everywhere,” says Zimmermann. “Everyone has an experience with a Walmart, Sonic Drive-In, and a Whataburger. Then there are places that are nowhere, right? And we’ve seen the kind of endless buttering of suburban housing. But how do we create a somewhere?”
The people involved in making Bryan Midtown happen are all ears to new suggestions. The voice of the people, and getting them involved in storytelling by using something as minor as the hashtag #BryanMidtown, can make all the difference in getting the ball rolling, according to Zimmermann.
