Public attends second input meeting for Brazos Promenade development


City Center Waco held their second meeting to address changed designs to the much anticipated Brazos Promenade riverfront development.

The purpose of the meeting Monday night was to get more feedback on the development’s public spaces.

It’s the public last input meeting before developers make their next big step.

Terronga Weaver is a native Wacoan, wanting to know more about the plans for the city’s multi-million dollar development downtown. She so far likes the family oriented-atmosphere proposed in the project.

“The whole family can come together. Friends, family and everyone together just enjoying Waco and what we have to offer,” Weaver said. “To put it on a bigger scale, I think it will be nice.”

The second meeting allows the public another look at rendering changes. Specifically, for the farmer’s market and the sidewalk areas from University Parks drive, on the stretch of I-35 to Franklin Avenue.

“It’s a beautiful space but it’s a little wonky. It’s got these beautiful oak trees, funny asphalt pattern because of it’s former use. So it’s kind of hard to design around,” City Center Executive Director Megan Henderson said.

After this meeting, developers are taking the final input to engineers and contractors to break ground in the fall.
