The City of Sugar Land continues its planning efforts to ensure residents of the Greatwood and New Territory communities experience a seamless transition into the City.

Community Update on Annexation

There will be no increase in costs or reduction in services to current city residents, and services to the annexed areas will be funded with money set aside during the last 10 years specifically for this purpose.

A detailed report was recently presented to City Council ensuring that full city services will be provided to Greatwood and New Territory immediately upon annexation on Dec. 12.
