Just a few reasons you should love Bryan

Why is Bryan so lovable? Maybe it’s because we’re a vibrant, growing and diverse community. Maybe it’s because we take pride in that community and want to see our friends and neighbors succeed. Or maybe it’s simply because we’re one of the friendliest communities in the nation. It just seems like there’s always more and more reasons to love Bryan. Here’s a few:

Bryan is a treasure trove for historians

From Boonville Heritage Park, to the Carnegie History Center in Downtown Bryan, to the Brazos Valley African American Museum, if you like history, you’ll love Bryan. Take a casual stroll through times gone by, or take a deeper dive into oral histories and genealogies. Whatever your level of interest, we’ve got you covered. As an added bonus, the City of Bryan is 150 years old this year!

In tough times, Bryan comes together

It’s been a rough 12 months, but our residents have banded together to help support our first responders, frontline health care workers and local businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Bryan has provided more than $1 million in aid to local businesses to help them stay afloat during the last 12 months. One of the best reasons to love Bryan is that Bryan loves you back.

Speaking of first responders

Bryan’s Police (BPD) and Fire Departments (BFD) are two of the best in the country. Their combined efforts keep the community as safe as possible. Over the last 10 years, there has been a 41 percent reduction in Part 1 crimes, and BPD is only one of 3 percent of agencies nationwide to be accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies. BFD is one of 400 agencies nationwide to have an Insurance Services Office (ISO) top rating of Class 1, and its EMS service is one of 11 agencies in Texas to be accredited through the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulances Services.

We’re growing beautifully

The city continues to set records for numbers of new construction permits and development projects throughout the city. This makes it important that we manage new development to make sure that Bryan stays the beautiful place we love. Our Planning and Development Services department does just that, working with residents to explain how new zoning and other initiatives work, as well as incorporating feedback from those residents in current and future planning.
