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.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED?

The City is looking for potential members for the Wellborn District Working Group. This group will include individuals in or around the planning area who represent a variety of expertise and backgrounds. Group members will meet roughly once a month to discuss public feedback, provide guidance on the plan’s direction, and act on behalf of the community. The deadline to apply is Oct. 28.

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.
