Piyo Class

Starting January 31 we will be offering a PiYo class-Tuesday night at 5:45pm-6:45pm at the Castlegate II Community Center. This is a great way to build community and get to know some of your neighbors! 


PiYo is an incredibly effective body-transformation program that combines Pilates and yoga-inspired moves, all set to a faster pace, so you get your strength, fexibility, and cardio all in each workout. PiYo delivers the long, lean muscles and flat, toned abs of Pilates, a firm butt and strong arms like you'd get from yoga, and the weight-loss benefits of fat-burning cardio. The movement pattern goes from longer (16 count) to shorter and faster (4 count). There is a lot of getting up and down from the floor to standing position. This program will work your core like no other and is great for athletes who want to stretch their hip flexors, IT Band, hamstrings, and lower back. It is great for folks who want to get in a great workout without  pounding on the joints. Classes are one hour  and are $8 per class. Sessions will run 8 weeks allowing for no class the week of Spring Break. There will be one free make up class in case you must miss a scheduled class. To register, please contact Mary Timoney at 979-428-5530 and she will get you all set up.

The Sheriff's Office Needs your Help!

PLEASE READ: Important Message from the Brazos County Crime Prevention Deputy Nathan Dennis

The Sheriff's Office has recently experienced a rise in reports of burglaries. During this time each year we tend to see increases in home burglaries, as more houses are unoccupied during daytime hours.

A current strategy for these thieves is to knock on the doors of a residence to check if anyone is home. If someone does answer the door the subject may ask for directions, or say they are looking for a certain person. If this happens to you, please lock the door and gather as much informaton on the subject and call your local Police Department or Sheriff's Office to report the incident.

The Sheriff's Office hs also seen an increase in vehichle burglaries. In most cases the vehichles that were burglarized were unlocked. We ask that you take all valuable items out of your vehichle and always lock it. If possible park your vehichle in a lighted area. Help us by being the eyes and ears of your Sheriff's Office.

If you see suspicious activity, contact 9-1-1 and report your concerns. The safety of our community does not have borders. It is the goal of every law enforcement agency to protect the citizens that they serve.

Reember... together we can make a difference in our community!

Update: Greens Prairie Trail Construction Project

  TXDOT’s contractor Knife River plans to begin work on the improvements at the intersection of Greens Prairie Trail & FM 2154 on October 24th. The scope of TXDOT’s project includes adding right and left turn lanes on FM 2154 at the intersection in both the north and south direction. As well as changing the vertical grades of the intersection to help accommodate a smooth transition over the new railroad crossing. The project manager for the TXDOT project is Connie Flickinger.

Also, Greens Prairie Trail between I&GN and FM 2154 and the new railroad crossing  are planned to be opened for use on October 25th. With the opening of Greens Prairie Trail the traffic signal at the intersection with FM 2154 will become active and Brazos County will close the railroad crossing at Straub Road on October 26th. With the new signal coming on line I would request that everyone use caution when approaching the intersection from all approaches and obey the commands of the signal. The vehicles along FM 2154 will have to get used to being mandated to stop at this intersection as well as seeing cross traffic from a 4 leg intersection. 

 


At the July 26th meeting the City of College Station and TXDOT presented information on the upcoming construction projects along Greens Prairie Trail and FM 2154. See below link for information on the projects, projects exhibits and the COCS construction plans that are currently in the bidding process.
