Thousands of Bryan-College Station Residents Gain Support to Protect Local River, Neighborhoods

Bluegreen Communities®, developer of King Oaks, a top-rated master-planned community in the Bryan-College Station area, is pleased to announce its support of Region H Water Planning Group’s unanimous vote to remove the proposed Millican Reservoir Project off of its ballot for long-term plans. According to the Guardians of the Navasota River, the proposed Millican Reservoir Project would have flooded over 71,000 acres in the Navasota River bottom, encompassing parts of Robertson, Grimes, Brazos, Leon and Madison Counties. This vote marks a victory for opponents of the Millican Reservoir Project, which would have displaced thousands of residents.

“This vote is a major step in the right direction to permanently protect the river and surrounding areas,” said Dan Koscher, President and CEO of Bluegreen Communities. “Residents of King Oaks and area homebuyers can celebrate the preservation of this beautiful land as a great place to live and play for generations to come.”

King Oaks offers a wide array of luxury amenities in a lush natural landscape, and its residents and neighbors worked hard to protect this Texas sanctuary. Homebuyers can be confident as a large number of locals were committed to the cause. More than 1,600 signatures of those opposing the Millican Reservoir Project were collected by the Guardians of the Navasota River, a group formed to oppose the proposed Millican Reservoir Project.

The Guardians of the Navasota River are continuing to collect signatures and are working towards having the river permanently protected which would block it from being re-instated on the ballot in five years.
