Bryan City Council, this week, will consider final approval on a tax increment finance zone, which should pave the way for a major retail development.

The second and final reading of the ordinance would create a TIF out of a 282-acre tract east of Highway Six and south of Briarcrest Drive.

So far, 60 acres of that area is already under development, known as the Bryan Towne Center.

A Target store is scheduled to open in July of 2008.

Creating a TIF out of the entire 282 acres will allow for infrastructure improvements and create a nine-member board of directors to adopt a financial plan for the zone.

Also on the agenda for Bryan Council is the appointment of an interim police chief.

Former Waxahachie Police Chief Bobby Whitmire was the unanimous choice of a committee last month.

Whitmire would replace Mike Strope on an interim basis until a new chief is named.

Council meets Tuesday at 7 p.m.
