The Central College Station Neighborhood Plan was adopted by the City Council on June 10, 2010. The plan focuses on four goals:
1) Promote and protect the suburban residential character in the core of Central College Station balanced with the need to provide denser redevelopment options along the neighborhood fringe.
2) Improve neighborhood organizations, property maintenance, and City code compliance in owner-occupied areas to elevate the attractiveness of Central College Station’s subdivisions as an affordable, family-friendly neighborhood.
3) Promote a safe, well-connected, context-sensitive, multi-modal transportation system to better connect Central College Station to the rest of the community and its local neighborhood centers.
4) Increase awareness and participation in resource conservation efforts.
