The City Council contracted with a consultant team comprised of CDS Spillette Strategic Urban Consulting Alliance and Avalanche Consulting to aid staff in the development of an Economic Development Master Plan which, when adopted by City Council, will be an amendment of the City of College Station Comprehensive Plan. The staff and consultant team developed a multi-phase approach to the development of the Plan.
City Council has previously received presentations for Phase I and Phase II of the Plan. Phase I focused primarily on identification of existing conditions, trends, and initial identification of opportunities, challenges, and barriers to economic development in College Station. Phase II of the Plan included a review of the City’s current economic incentive program, current economic development structure, and review of the City’s current districts and redevelopment areas. Phase II also included an overview of the business surveys conducted by the consultant team and an analysis of the same.
Now staff, in partnership with the consultant team, has taken the information developed in Phases I and II of the Plan and crafted Phase III, which will serve as the formal Economic Development Master Plan. This phase includes six economic development specific strategic initiatives, goals, strategies, and actions recommended to seize upon opportunities, and overcome challenges and barriers.
