Bryan Council Discusses Rezoning, Fire Station

By  | 

There are more changes being made to the residential zoning maps in Bryan.

A portion of the Briarcrest West subdivision is now officially zoned under the Neighborhood Conservation District heading. That means no more than two unrelated residents can live in a house.

The first reading of ordinances on three other subdivisions -- in Austin's Colony, Woodson Terrace and BB Scasta -- were approved Tuesday night by the city council.

A number of neighborhoods have filed for the change since the council approved the new designation.

A group of College Station architects have been contracted to help with Bryan's newest fire station. BRW Architects will provide architectural and engineering services for Fire Station #5, which will be built on the west side of Bryan.

The city hopes to move in to the new station by October 2008, but says construction must begin by October of this year to stay on schedule. The total project is budgeted at $3 million.

Fire Station #5 and the soon-to-be-built Justice Center will be a part of certificates of obligation issued by the city of Bryan. Tuesday evening, the council approved a resolution for no more than $12 million of certificates to be issued. Just under $6 million of that would go towards construction on the Justice Center. That money would supplement 12-million dollars of certificates issued in 2004.

The new money will be discussed March 13th.
