The City of College Station has been notified that two of its programs have been selected by the National League of Cities to be a part of their showcase of programs at the annual conference in San
Antonio in November.

The “Aggie” Up Program, a cooperative program between Texas A&M and the cities of College Station and Bryan was selected as one of the programs. “Aggie Up” is the umbrella for a number of programs that work to educate off‐campus students about proper neighborhood relations, good citizenship, and basic ordinance and laws that affect them as citizens of the community. The name “Aggie Up” is a term
that implies that if you are a student who claims the name Aggie, then you should live up to that proud name in all of your interactions as a resident. The application was submitted by Barbara Moore,
Neighborhood Services Coordinator for the City of College Station.

The College Station Utilities Energy Conservation Program was also chosen to be showcased at the conference. College Station offers an array of energy conservation programs designed to reduce
consumption, assist consumers in making wise choices on new construction, HVAC replacement, lighting and power options, and residential and commercial weatherization and improvement. This entry was submitted by Jane Sayers, Energy Coordinator for the city.

According to Will McGhan of the National League of Cities, “There were a total of 21 programs selected out of 60 applications and 8 of those were from Texas.”
