Kyle Planning and Zoning Commission meets Tuesday

Among the items to be discussed by Kyle P&Z is the proposed residential style guide, which could be used to direct developers and homebuilders in how to style the residences they build. The aim of the guide, according to a staff memo, is to break up some of monotony and uniformity of the city’s existing developments.

“Kyle is falling into a building pattern resulting in a bedroom community, removed and detached from the emergent ‘Kyle’ brand, completely dependent on the automobile, without any particular identity or sense of place,” the guide states. The meeting takes place at City Hall, 100 W. Center St., at 6:30 p.m. The agenda can be viewed here.
