Manvel City Council members on Monday tackled approval of a master plan for Del Bello Lakes.

Currently under development after an October groundbreaking, Del Bello Lakes is expected to begin home sales next year. The community is located off Highway 288 at Del Bello Blvd, north of Highway 6.

Before their regular session, city leaders again held a workshop on the design and development of city facilities. The city last year hired Houston-based design firm PGAL to plan its new city hall expansion. A final plan has not yet been approved.

During the meeting, Mayor Debra Davison recognized the Manvel Community Outreach, a nonprofit that formed in 2015 to combat hunger. The group has begun preparations to serve Thanksgiving dinner to hundreds of guests at its second annual Thanksgiving Community Feast, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 26 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Alvin. Volunteers are requesting donated side dishes, pies, rolls and gallons of tea, water and lemonade. For information, call 281-413-7630 or email [email protected].

Also during Monday’s meeting, the council:

– Approved a replat for 1.7 acres for Michael and Janice Culling.

Cast the city’s vote for candidates to the Brazoria County Appraisal District.

– Approved a request by Meridiana involving changing land use for Section 45 from single family to patio, changing lot sizes from 100 feet wide to 50 feet wide.

– Adopted the hazard mitigation plan for Brazoria County.

– Approved the second reading of an ordinance abandoning 40 feet of unimproved right of way.

The council meets again on Monday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. Meetings are held at Manvel City Hall, 20025 Highway 6, and meetings are open to the public.
