Downtown master plan
There will also be the first City Council public hearing regarding the proposed downtown master plan. The Kyle Planning and Zoning Commission held its two public hearings for the plan in November, which is paired with the city's design standards.
Some major improvements have already been made over the past couple of years to revitalize downtown, namely the renovation of Mary Kyle Hartson City Square Park at nearly $2 million.
BGK Architects conducted outreach from residents throughout 2022 to gain feedback and insight on what the community wants out of downtown; however, residents are still encouraged to attend the meeting and share their thoughts about downtown.
There will be no action taken regarding the plan until the council's following meeting, Dec. 20.
Public Safety Center
The council will also take action on a budget amendment and contract extension for the Public Safety Center project. The $37 million voter-approved bond project broke ground September 2021 to accommodate the city's growth and will serve as a proper facility for the police department, which resides in what used to be a bank next to City Hall.
The project is around 70% complete, and the contract will need to be extended through May, according to agenda documents, though completion was expected in March.
The City Council meeting will start at 7 p.m. at Kyle City Hall, 100 W. Center St., Kyle.
