Join the College Station's "Citizen Congress" Monday, Dec. 4th, at 6 pm.
Residents of College Station can voice their opinions about College Station growth, traffic and restrictions Monday, December 4th, 2006 at 6 pm, in the Oakwood Room of the College Station Hilton. Residents will be broken into focus groups, transportation, economic development and community character. There has been quite a bit of interest in this, as citizens want, and need, to be a part of the comprehensive plan. Sugar Land consulting firm Kendig Keast Collaborative is in charge of rewriting the city plan documents, complete with citizen feedback.
The city received over 100 applications for its earlier advisory committee. Forty people actually serve.
Earlier analysis showed some of College Station's strenghts and weaknesses. Strengths included our airport, arts, culture and university amenities, and an adequate cost of living. Weaknesses included lack of economic diversity, sprawl, failure to plan thoroughfares for growth and neighborhood degradation.
