Brian and Amanda Light have transformed the historic Downtown Bryan Ice House from a vacant building into a lively, bustling farm-to-table restaurant that has become a go-to spot for entertainment. That’s why the Lights, owners of Ronin Restaurant, were honored with the 2019 Mayor’s Downtown Impact Award.
WHAT: Home Foundation Initiative program workshop
WHEN: 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019
WHERE: Save our Streets Ministry, 1700 Groesbeck St., Bryan, TX
Residents who live in the former MU-1-zoned areas have another opportunity to learn about the City of Bryan’s Home Foundation Initiative program at a workshop about the program on Oct. 22. A light meal will be served. Limited seating is available, so those interested in attending should call 979.209.5175 to RSVP.
The Home Foundation Initiative program, approved by the Bryan City Council on July 9, 2019, will assist 10 eligible and qualified families in Bryan to improve their living conditions. This multi-faceted, comprehensive program encourages the construction of stick-built homes by allowing the city to purchase applicants’ mobile or manufactured homes and providing financial literacy and home maintenance education. Each qualified applicant can receive $10,000 or more on a first-come, first-served basis. These funds will be placed in escrow until the closing of the family’s home.
To qualify for this program, residents must (in addition to other requirements):
- Have lived in Bryan for 5 or more years.
- Own both the home they live in and the lot the home currently sits on.
- Be located in the former MU-1 zoning district.
