There will be much more discussion before plans are finalized, but College Station is moving ahead on plans to put a major bond before the voters.
The city council heard from a citizen's committee, which over the course of months of studies, made a list of recommendations for potential projects.
The highest ranked projects include the creation of a sixth fire station, one that would likely go in at University Drive near Tarrow Road.
Also on the list:
- the start of an extension of Jones-Butler Road
- three million dollars worth of new traffic signals
- the building of a park in the Creekview neighborhood
- the extension of Victoria Avenue
In all, more than $80 million worth of projects were on the list for possible inclusion in the bond.

In order for the bond to appear on the November ballot, the state must have the item by mid-August.
Not on that list is the city center idea which would bring the city's staff into a one major complex instead of being at various locations around the city. A number of council members , including Mayor Ben White, have urged for the project to return to the forefront.
