City Councils Advance Land Use Rules For Bio-Med CorridorFeatured Stories, News Friday, September 28th, 2012
Last December, the Bryan and College Station city councils entered an interlocal agreement to create the bio-medical corridor.
This week, came action to create the rules governing land use.
Final action by the Bryan council is a week from next Tuesday, which follows first round approval on a unaminous vote with little discussion.
That was not the case in College Station, where a 5-2 split was due to giving final authority to an appointed board comprised of representatives from both cities and Texas A&M University.
Jess Fields cast one of the two no votes.
Speaking after Fields was Karl Mooney, who made the motion to approve.
Mayor Nancy Berry was next in line.
Julie Schultz was also part of the majority vote.
Blanche Brick agreed with Schultz, Berry, and Mooney.
Katy-Marie Lyles voted no after hearing the council doesn’t have the final say on bio-corridor issues, which the council does with business involving the twin cities’ solid waste authority.
Dave Ruesink, who voted yes, said he didn’t blame Fields for his opinion.
