College Station Texas Big Government Maneuver

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Classic Realty Associates

Everything changes with Time. Lord do we know this.  Just look at the changes that have taken place in our twin cities of Bryan/College Station! We have seen a great deal especially in the last 10 years. Growth has kept the economy vibrant. But now there is some change in the air that worries us.  BIG GOVERNMENT.

Our City fathers on the College Station Council are playing with fire. They are trying under the guise of watching out for us , to stop any rural development in the city's ETJ.  This is Big Government at its finest. We urge all concerned citizens, Real estate agents, builders, and developers to call, write, fax, email and holler at the city council to not go forth with the proposed changes in development rules. They do not want any development in the ETJ to create any tracts less than 20 acres. There is no way that a developer can do this and make a profit and the city knows it! They are in effect trying to stop current development in these areas in order to speed up annexation for purposes of feeding the Tax monster.

Don't Let this Happen!

What is their reasoning for these development rules??  I can't see it being good for the area.

Linda,

it is all about CONTROL. One gentleman said they don't need an ETJ  they need an ECL  "Extended city limit " ;-)  That is basically what they are doing.
