Quote:

The Bryan city council approves a $4.5 million dollar contract to design and build a playground area at Midtown Park.

A local foundation is providing $2 million dollars and the city's general fund is providing the remaining $2.5 million.

During a special council meeting on Tuesday, deputy city manager Hugh Walker says there is a "blank canvas" for the playground, which will be located on green space west of the lake between Legends Events Center and the future building housing a movie theater, bowling center, and restaurant.

Background information from the city says the specific playground equipment for two play areas will be determined during the design process.

The area will also have a pavilion and restroom building, two bridges, and sidewalks.

Speaking of Midtown, since everyone loved the I heart Aggieland sign that CS put up at city hall ( ), I wanted to make sure everyone saw the BryanTX sign that Bryan put up at Midtown Park

Love to see intercity competition. Really do. Good for business. College Station is stuck in this regard though. Sure wish they would get out of their own way.

Just think of all the savings to the tax payer by omitting the comma.

Anyone know the status of Poche's Seafood? I see the sign on the building, but don't know anything about the schedule to open.

It's so when asked for a statement they could say "No comma."

It's the heart that makes it look bad to me. The Bryan sign looks much classier and I like that it references the actual city name. The Aggieland sign in CS is really only appealing to Aggies and in a terrible location for out of town visitors to come across.

Poche's is waiting for gas line to be installed to building. Developer overlooked it during construction I'm told.

Speaking of…that was announced as a two year project. So, as we get perilously close to year three, how much longer until it's done?

Wow. That's a pretty glaring oversight for a restaurant space.

Should have been done by now based on original timeline...

They are still a couple months out from moving SB traffic to the new lanes. Then they will have 6+ months of work to work in the median area for all the turn lanes. While they are doing that they will finish the NB bridge area. Then then will need to repave the lanes with the final layer and get the lights figured out. Would surprise me if they finish by next fall. They are currently a year behind schedule...

1) What happened that caused them to be so far behind?

2) Is the contractor the one taking what I can only assume is a huge loss - a year or more of extra labor costs? I'm sure it's a lot more complicated than that but ... what a mess.

Maybe it was delayed because of all the rain we've got the last 2 years.

Sad to hear that. I ate in once and did a take out order once. The food was good both times. When I did the take-out order, I don't think there were any customers in the restaurant and the time I did dine-in, maybe two other tables the whole time. It never seemed to catch on.

Lack of marketing, especially to the students who likely would never stumble across it due to the location.

Ugh. That spot is an infamous Dead Zone for restaurants. I'm impressed Babylon Cafe has made it this far.
