For the second time in eight months, the College Station city council denies changing the use of land in a Wellborn neighborhood for commercial purposes.
Last Thursday’s unanimous vote involved two acres off Victoria, bordering the Creek Meadows subdivision.
The president of the group Citizens For Wellborn, Jane Cohen, supported the proposal.
April marked the tenth anniversary that the council approved annexing Wellborn, over the objection of the citizens group. Current councilmen Dennis Maloney and John Crompton, who voted for the annexation, took that into consideration when voting against the land use change request.
At least three councilmembers talked about reviewing future land uses in the Wellborn area.
And the discussion brought up the absence of the citizen’s group and Wellborn property owners outside the state mandated notification area not being told about the proposed land use change.
