A commitment to public involvement and education efforts have been at the center of the Land Use Plan Update. As the process has moved forward, a variety of activities have taken place to empower the public to have a voice in Sugar Land's future.
The Land Use Advisory Committee (LUAC) is a committee appointed by City Council and made up of residents of Sugar Land and its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). LUAC members have been diligently working to develop policies that will guide future land use decisions.
Over 200 community members attended and participated in the Land Use Forum from January to April of 2014. Open to the public, this speaker and community discussion series on land use focused on important topics for the near and long-term future of Sugar Land.
A series of public meetings were held in late 2014 and the beginning of 2015. These meetings were open to the public. Public participation and discussion on specific items was encouraged.
For those not being able to attend a public meeting to provide their feedback, Online Town Halls have been used as a way to receive this feedback and provide an additional manner in which residents can get involved.
