The city of Conroe unanimously approved the bylaws and the first appointments to its Main Street Advisory Board at its Jan. 13 meeting.

Downtown Manager Frank Robinson delivered the presentation to City Council members at their Jan. 12 workshop session.



The Texas Historical Commission gave Conroe its Main Street Community designation on Oct. 29, according to Robinson’s presentation. Main Street Communities provide resources and technical support to towns and cities looking to preserve their main streets.

Robinson said the purpose of advisory boards would be to aid and promote projects in downtown Conroe. The mayor would appoint six of the nine members of the board, with the three remaining members representing the Conroe Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Conroe Economic Development Council, and the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.

The members of the advisory board include the following people.





Robinson said members could appoint a further six ex officio members.
