The Rosenberg Development Corp. will hold its monthly meeting Thursday at 4 p.m., but this could be the last time board members meet at that time.
At Thursday’s meeting, board members will consider changing the start time of the meetings to 5 p.m. This item was brought to the board by RDC president Ted Garcia. Board members will also discuss the RDC office building project.
In January, the RDC agreed that the proposed location for a new building would be at the corner of Fairgrounds Boulevard and SH 36, a location owned by the city. Board member Teresa Bailey said the RDC has been looking for its own building for at least 10 years.
“We’ve been meeting and talking about this building ever since I was appointed to the board,” she said. “We need a separate building for the RDC. It needs to be in a prominent location.
“The sooner the better.”
The RDC currently meets at the Rosenberg Civic and Convention Center, located at 3825 SH 36. In other business, Fort Bend Transit Director Perri D’Armond will present a new marketing initiative to the board. According to city staff, D’Armond will provide ridership statistics of the program to the board.
In March 2015, the RDC entered into a three-year, $75,000 per-year contract with Fort Bend Transit to help the county service the transit needs of its citizens.
In 2018, the RDC renewed its contract on a year-to-year basis. And last month, the RDC approved another $75,000, one-year extension. Board members will also discuss a proposed declaration of restrictions for the Village Crossing commercial property.
In 2017, the RDC entered into an agreement with Village Crossing. The RDC will extend Airport Avenue from FM 2218 to the access road of U.S. 59, at an estimated cost of $3,173,050.
Per the agreement, Village Crossing is required to produce deed restrictions for the development.
