CS Council Receives Second of Three Consultant Economic Development ReportsFeatured Stories, News Thursday, January 17th, 2013
The College Station City Council has planned a strategic retreat for the end of the month.
One of the topics, economic development, received attention at the council’s last meeting.
The second of three presentations focused, among other things, on incentive programs and other things related to recruiting new business and industry. Consultant Amy Holloway recommended adding city staff to work with prospects.
Holloway also talked about the city’s qualilty of life.
Another consultant, Tom DeLisi, says more needs to be done with the city’s entertainment districts, particularly Wolf Pen Creek Park and Northgate.
The report also lists survey results of 100 businessowners, some who suggest building a hotel-conference center that is larger than the Brazos County Expo complex. The top two survey recommendations were loosening development restrictions and requirements and speeding up the development and permit process.
