Preliminary Approval Given To Another West Bryan Development

Six weeks ago, the Bryan city council approved turning more than 160 acres on the west side into more than six hundred homes.

A second development was given unanimous first round approval at Tuesday’s council meeting.

There were no comments during a public hearing or from the council on the Galindo Ranch proposal.

It is located on the south side of Villa Maria across the street from the Autumn Lakes and Shirewood developments or north of Traditions.

Nearly 50 acres would be converted into a mix of single and multi-family dwellings along with commercial buildings and open space.

The proposal was unanimously recommended last month by the Planning and Zoning Commission. P&Z member Pete Bienski was among those giving developer Ram Galindo an enthusiastic thumbs up.

P&Z Chairman Michael Beckendorf thanked Galindo for his work in west Bryan for 40 years.

One concern was raised during the P&Z’s public hearing about flood control. City staff says that has been addressed by leaving 30 percent of the land undeveloped.
