CS Council Zoning Decision Not Sought by Applicant

The College Station city council decided to change the zoning of vacant land north of Wellborn that wasn’t sought by the landowner or considered by the planning and zoning commission.

The council voted 5-2 approving suburban commercial land uses on 1.3 acres of land along Wellborn Road south of Fitch.

James Benham made the motion.

Also approving the motion were Mayor Nancy Berry and councilmen Karl Mooney and Steve Aldrich.

Blanche Brick and John Nichols voted no.

Nichols voted no after bringing up the more restrictive zoning was not requested by the property owner.

Last November, the council voted 4-3 against the less restrictive general commercial zone. The current landowner asked a second time for general commercial and it was unanimously rejected by the planning and zoning commission.

Neighbors against any commercial land use included Carol Fountaine.

The current landowner, a church that decided to build elsewhere, says they have had no offers from prospective homebuilders.
