Because the population of College Station has topped one hundred thousand, the city can extend it’s extraterritorial jurisdiction…the distance from the city limits for future annexation…from three and a half to five miles. And that’s what was done at the last College Station city council meeting.
Planning and development director Lance Simms answered the question of why expand the E-T-J further into Grimes and Burleson counties.
The council agreed with Simms to ask Grimes County to enter an E-T-J development agreement similar to Burleson County.
Simms expects future annexation to take place first in Brazos County, along Highway six and F-M 2154. While Navasota is not off their radar, it would not be annexed anytime soon.
The city has already has an E-T-J development agreement with Brazos County.
