A vote is looming on the future of six county areas that could become part of the City of College Station.
Thursday night, the city council agreed a vote on annexation new land for the city will likely take place at its next meeting February 28.
The council and staff ended up reducing the number of acres that would be brought within the city limits if approved.
In all, about 300 acres of the proposed 3,000-acre annexation were carved out of the plan.
Residents living in those areas have voiced displeasure with the idea of having to pay city taxes at a pair of recent public hearings.
City staff cites the need to get ahead of future growth and control its gateways as the reason for this plan.
