Updates to Chapter 8, Growth Management & Capacity, of the City’s Comprehensive Plan
Based on direction provided by the Annexation Task Force, staff has drafted changes to Chapter 8, Growth Management & Capacity, of the city’s Comprehensive Plan.
In May of 2015, the City Council appointed an Annexation Task Force - comprised of three Planning & Zoning Commissioners and three City Council members - to update the timing, priorities, and phasing of future annexations. The Annexation Task Force met for several months and their work resulted in proposed revisions to Chapter Eight of the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The proposed revisions to Chapter eight are intended to establish and maintain the necessary policy guidance and associated strategies to maintain the City’s ongoing physical growth in a sensible, predictable, and fiscally responsible manner.
As part of their effort, the Annexation Task Force reached out to a number of stakeholders. Examples include College Station ISD, Wellborn SUD, the County Commission, and various City departments. A public hearing was held before the Planning & Zoning Commission on 21 April 2016. The City Council approved the changes to Chapter 7 following the public hearing on 28 April 2016.
