North Bay City – a 10-12 block area featuring townhouses and mixed-used development – was reviewed by the Matagorda County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) last week.

   It’s just the opposite thanks to engineer and entrepreneur Stuart Lynn’s purchase of two acres off Eighth Street downtown just north of Wells Fargo bank. Lynn plans to build zero-lot-line townhouses on both sides of Cottonwood Creek that divides his property. 
   Lynn’s decision accelerated planning for North Bay City – bounded by Eighth Street, Texas 60, 11th Street and the railroad tracks – that various groups discussed and has received “overwhelming approval by a large response,” Dunham told the MCEDC board at its meeting Friday, Feb. 27.
