A long vacant piece of commercial property along the freeway in College Station has been given more development options.
City Council approval for rezoning along the northbound service road between Raintree and Horse Haven Estates followed an hour’s worth of debate.
Homeowners living in the Raintree subdivision off Southwest Parkway, including Mark Buxkemper, were opposed to removing the ban on building restaurants.
