The developers for the Belle Towers Senior Community apartment complex want the endorsement of the Brenham City Council to build the proposed facility.

Brenham City Manager Terry Roberts concluded the city council meeting Thursday by saying the endorsement will be on the agenda for the January 23rd meeting.

The endorsement would help the developers get federal tax credits and other benefits.

The apartment complex would be three stories high with 52-one bedroom unit, 729 square feet in size, and 24 two-bedroom units at 990 square feet in size.

The Brenham Planning and Zoning Commission voted to recommend approval before the apartments could be built.

That area is now zoned for mixed residential use, but apartments are allowed under city code in those zoning districts only if they are on tracts of less than two acres.  The proposed site is just over two acres.

The apartments would not be rent subsidized but developers could earn federal tax credits by setting aside units for senior citizens falling into income brackets.
