  • We are excited to announce that the Planning and Development Services department has received the 2020 Richard R. Lillie Planning Excellence Award! This is the 14th year that College Station has received this designation. The award, which is granted by the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association, distinguishes Texas municipalities with high levels of professional qualifications and training of planning staff and Planning and Zoning Commissioners. It recognizes communities that take a holistic approach to comprehensive planning and master planning efforts, and those that seek public engagement to create better plans and increase awareness of the importance of planning. 

  • The 10-year Comprehensive Plan Evaluation & Appraisal Report was accepted by City Council at their October 8, 2020 meeting. This is part of The Next 10 initiative, a major effort to consider recent growth, current trends, best practices, and to define updates to the City's policies to guide the next 10 years. City Staff are now launching the plan update process. Formal updates to the Comprehensive Plan are anticipated in 2021 and city staff will host additional public engagement opportunities in the coming months.
