  7. The City of Bryan needs to align at least two crossings of Texas Ave. between Rosemary and Villa Maria. The way the light cycles are now with akward crossings at Sulpher Springs/Eagle Pass, North/Broodmoor, Hensel/Inwood makes for less efficient east-west traffic and longer waits on Texas. College Ave is in a better position for continued development. It's already happening, just slowly.

  9. Ten year update can be summed up as: AgShacks takeover some established neighborhoods, a "SuperPark" is in the works for the old Muni site, and finally, a study is being done for the "potential" of this area of town, branded as Midtown. The area has had loads of potential for a while, it's nice that decision makers have begun taking steps to help the area redevelop in a more organized manor.
  10. Bryan working on master plan for area between Northgate and Downtown BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - The City of Bryan is looking for new ideas for a large section of town.

  12. This is news to me. "Fitch" from a popular Texas A&M forum got the ball rolling on this, big time, he would likely know more details. This at least looks promising, even if vague. From KBTX, 2015: Group Working to Add Amenities, Renovations to Spence Park, about Fitch's website(since taken offline as far as I know) and efforts to build momentum for a project. From KBTX, 2016: Texas A&M quietly continuing plans for Spence Park renovations
  13. Thought I'd revive this thread since another theater is opening in the not-too-distant future. Bryan Queen Theatre: Early 1900's - mid-70's. Originally opened as the Exchange Hotel, late 1800s, became a theater, the Crystal, in the early 1900s, burning in 1914. Purchased by Shulman in 1926. Torn down and rebuilt in art deco style in 1939.

Partially burned by fire built by vagrant in 1983. In the ear
