Just back from a city retreat, College Station city leaders have begun discussing their vision for a future city center.
The city has already purchased land for this future site along Krenek Tap road. Right now it's a wooded area behind the police station.
But in the future council members would like to have a conference center and a state of the art city hall. In Wednesday's council meeting council members considered a $5.5 million conference center. City leaders reviewed plans for a $7 million plus center with an indoor aquatics area. But, council members quickly scaled back that plan for a much simpler facility.
As for the future city hall. City leaders discussed the need for a one stop city hall which would house alll city offices and municipal courts. This city hall would be planned to last 20 years. It would be some 70,000 square feet and cost $38 million.
City leaders would at least like to get the conference center on the ballot for a november bond election.
