Sugar Land’s Development Code provides guidance for the review of requests to alter or develop property within the city. It includes regulations on the control and the use of land and buildings (known as zoning), signs, subdivision of land, building standards and flood damage reduction regulations.
The current development code makes use of guidelines that were adopted over 20 years ago. The update aims to modernize and simplify the development code with the goal of adapting it to today's needs.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has completed its review and recommendation of the draft changes to the zoning use classifications and parking requirements. On November 13, the Commission unanimously recommended approval of the Code changes to City Council. City Council held a workshop and review of the draft ordinance on January 8. Next, City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on February 5, 2019, at 6 pm at Sugar Land City Hall and take action on the first reading of the ordinance during the City Council meeting.
Agendas and meeting materials are available prior to the meetings. Meeting presentations and videos of discussion are available after the meeting.
