Paving the Way for Development in Bryan

The city of Bryan is one step closer to having a new neighborhood, complete with a shopping center and possibly a school.

The Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday approved rezoning for about 150 acres at Sandy Point Road and North Harvey Mitchell Parkway in northwest Bryan.

The land is designed for a single-family home subdivision, with part of it reserved for a new elementary school.

Bryan ISD has entered into a contract for that piece of land for a future elementary school, but haven't yet closed on the property, according to school district officials.

The commission also approved about five acres at the intersection of Sandy Point and North Harvey Mitchell for retail businesses.

The city council still has to approve the changes.
