With gas prices the way they are and showing no signs of tapering off, College Station leaders will make bike trails and walking paths a big talking point Thursday.
About a decade ago, a city committee started laying the groundwork for what is now being called the Bicycle, Pedestrian and Greenway Master Plan.
Thursday, the council will spend part of their workshop session discussing a potential network of bike paths and pedestrian trails. An advisory committee for a more in-depth plan could also be formed.
Also during the workshop, the Wolf Pen Creek area of College Station will be up for discussion.
With about 50 acres still undeveloped around landmarks like the amphitheater, Arctic Wolf and the Arts Council's Center, city leaders will discuss how to best develop the remainder of the prime real estate.
Some on the council have questioned recent developments in the corridor, saying they do not fit in to the arts and entertainment mold originally discussed for the area.
