Leander City Council approved the second round of design for the North Brushy Streetscape Project in Old Town Leander during a meeting Thursday night.

Improvements to the North Brushy Streetscape gained support in May when Leander voters approved four bond propositions totaling $70.9 million for city projects involving transportation, parks projects, a recreation center and a senior center.
