Plans to replace a Bryan convenience store with a new building first required approval to change zoning.
And the Bryan city council unanimously approved the planning and zoning commission (P&Z) recommendation to switch from the midtown district zone which was approved in August 2021 to a planned development district at the southeast corner of Villa Maria and South College.
Comments from councilmembers who previously served on P&Z noted the non-conforming use is not meant to be taken as setting zoning precedent.
The rezoning, which was unanimously supported by P&Z, allows gas pumps to return to what will be a new convenience store.
There is also a requirement that landscaping be maintained.
