Brownwood City Council members will take up matters Tuesday related to a proposed development that will include a Walgreen’s.
Brownwood City Council members will consider a resolution Tuesday that authorizes the city to pay the $107,943 cost for the Texas Department of Transportation to install a traffic signal at the intersection of Main Street and the McCulley Street extension. This will be the entrance to the new development, according to the agenda packet for Tuesday’s meeting.
TxDOT representatives will make a presentation of the proposed intersection at the Tuesday meeting.
Also Tuesday, council members will consider awarding a bid for the exchange of city-owned property that will provide right-of-way for the McCulley Street extension. It will provide a parallel route to West Commerce between Romines and North Main.
The council will consider approving an exchange between the city property, at 501 E. Commerce, and Sandy Neal Enterprises, 416 N. Main. The business will pay the city $60,000 for the difference in value between the two properties.
