CS Council Could See to Packed CPAC

By  | 

College Station's city council is poised to appoint citizens to what should be an active board.

During Thursday 7pm meeting, the council could fill eight open slots on the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC). That 15-member group will advise city staff and consultants during the upcoming comprehensive planning process.

Over 100 residents applied to serve on the committee. Those applicants were then divided into four geographic regions. The council will also look at appointing a citizen-at-large, a Texas A&M or Blinn student, and a citizen in the city's extra territorial jurisdiction. Alternates could also be chosen.

Seven members of the board have already been appointed: four representatives of city boards and commissions, a county commissioner, and representatives from three major residential developers.

City staff is recommending that council choose the eight citizen members during Thursday's meeting.
