The Next 10

FOCUS ON THE FUTURE WORKSHOPS

Community input is an essential part of The Next 10. In September, we’ll have a series of four identical workshops at locations throughout College Station to gather your thoughts and concerns about our city’s current and future growth. In each hour-and-a-half meeting, you will learn about conditions and trends facing our community and work in small groups to generate insights on the desired outcomes for how the city should develop over the next 10 years. Attend the session convenient for you. There will be activities for kids available and a Spanish translator.

The Next 10 FlyerThe Next 10 is a major effort to consider recent growth, current trends, and best practices, and to define updates to the city’s policies to guide the next 10 years. The process will lead to the creation of a 10-Year Evaluation and Appraisal Report that may recommend updates to the city’s Comprehensive Plan.
 
The city is committed to updating its policies to address the issues of today and prepare for those that may arise. The process is an opportunity to consider our city’s direction in light of current trends and community values and is an effort to proactively address topics that are important to you. 
Meeting Picture
 
The Next 10 process will last about 12-14 months and will include multiple opportunities for community input. The process will address topics important to you that will shape the community for years to come. No one knows the community like those who live or work in College Station. Share your ideas and feedback to ensure that the city’s direction represents the authentic voice of the community.
WHO'S INVOLVED
Comprehensive Plan Evaluation Committee. The Comprehensive Plan Evaluation Committee is a diverse group of residents appointed to serve as community advocates for the evaluation, to provide guidance and direction regarding the process and substance, and to serve as stewards of the evaluation plan once completed.

Stakeholders. Various stakeholder groups will be convened to inform specific aspects of the vision. These groups include business leaders, neighborhood associations, real estate professionals and developers, education professionals, students, and young professionals, among others.

Public. Widespread community participation is vital to The Next 10’s success. Various in-person workshops and online tools will offer more ways for the community to give input throughout the process. The first public events will be Sept. 23-25.

City Staff. City staff will support and help coordinate the work of all other groups and their local knowledge and expertise.

Elected officials. The mayor and council will monitor The Next 10 process and the resulting community vision, recognizing that success should be independent of the city’s elected leadership.

Consultants. Planning NEXT will facilitate the process and share their experience from working with other successful communities.
