Nelson said that the city is growing, noting that there is a boom in single-family residential permits. He added that there is growth in larger homes, not only starter homes.
Work on the city’s midtown park is going well, Nelson told attendees, noting that the lake is being deepened and widened. He said that in the future he wants there to be panels outlining the history of the park and the work that had to be done to improve it, especially given that there had once been an arsenic spill that impacted the area several decades ago.
Nelson also said that the city of Bryan is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.
The Bryan Rotary Club meeting was hosted on Zoom. The event is normally a luncheon but had to be moved online because of repair work being completed at Phillips Event Center due to damage from February’s winter storm.
