The Bryan City Council is taking action on four economic development issues – WTAW

WTAW 1620 94.5 City of Bryan Texas Featured

May’s regular meeting of the Bryan City Council, including four topics related to economic development.

One of those was creating a reinvestment zone on the RELLIS campus on the west side that would allow for property tax breaks. A statement from A&M System Chancellor John Sharp, read by Mayor Bobby Gutierrez, said the 288-acre reinvestment zone could be the largest economic development project since the founding of Texas A&M University.

A third item also benefiting the CertainTeed facility is the completion of a contract for the extension of a waterline along Mumford Road. Public Works Director Jayson Barfknecht said the expansion will ultimately create a loop for customers in the Texas Triangle Park, including Axis Pipe and Tube and Kristen Distributing. The council approved management of the $1.7 million project, which will be paid for by the City-County Economic Development Foundation (EDF).
