WELLBORN DISTRICT PLAN

The Wellborn area has experienced changed conditions in recent years and is facing continued development pressures for growth. The City of College Station is launching an update to the Wellborn Community Plan, which covered 2013-2023. This planning effort, rebranded as the Wellborn District Plan, stems from discussions with residents and appointed and elected officials during the recent update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The Wellborn plan update aims to create a cohesive district that reflects the residents’ vision for the community, recognizes the unique character of Wellborn, and supports the overall vision of College Station. Public engagement is expected to kick-off in January 2023.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    WHY CREATE A PLAN
    Small Area Plans allow for a closer look into the existing conditions, trends and development pressures within a specific area of the city. Effective planning ensures that future development occurs where, when and how the community needs and desires. Participating in a small area plan allows residents to learn about what goes into a planning effort and to voice their questions and opinions about the future of their area. The collective input of everyone involved is complied, evaluated for feasibility, prioritized, and put into context of the city’s goals that live within the Comprehensive Plan.

The group will be comprised of individuals who are property owners and/or residents within the planning area, the city at large and/or reside in the city’s ETJ. This group should expect to meet roughly once a month starting in Jan. 2023 and continuing through June 2023.

    You can still participate in the planning process even if you are unable to attend the public meetings. Resources and input opportunities will be posted online that were presented during each meeting.

    Existing Plan (2013-2023)
    The existing Wellborn Community Plan was adopted by City Council on April 25, 2013 and was a planning effort under the 2009 Comprehensive Plan. The planning area is located in the southwestern portion of the City and includes much of the remaining historic Wellborn Community. The Wellborn planning area consists of approximately 929 acres and is bound by I&GN Road, Greens Prairie Road West, Royder Road, Barron Cut-Off Road, and Capstone Drive.
