There is no question that the former Freeport Community House along the Old Brazos River would be a beautiful location for a multicultural center. But there also is little doubt that Freeport City Council’s decision to continue keeping it off-limits from development is the best long-term decision.

City leaders chose Monday night to leave that site in the Texas Parks and Wildlife Park Protection Program, meaning a private, non-recreation project can’t build on the property. That designation has been on the land as far back as many people can remember.
