Bryan Council Approves Two Skate Parks & Endorses Cultural District Designation

By next April, the city of Bryan will open two new skate parks. The city council has awarded a $1.2 million dollar design contract. The locations have not been determined, but downtown businessowner Debbie Jasek asked for one near an area where skateboarders are tearing up concrete steps and curbs. Over the next four months, there will be four public meetings to gather input, including possible locations. Construction is scheduled to start at the end of September.

The Bryan city council has given its support to naming the downtown area a state-certified cultural district. Deputy City Manager Joey Dunn says no money is involved and it does not impact land use regulations. The application, which goes to the Texas Commission on the Arts, was drafted by the Downtown Bryan Association, the Arts Council of the Brazos Valley, and the Convention and Visitors Bureau.
