The annexation of Greatwood and New Territory increased the City’s population, requiring the City’s four single member City Council districts to be adjusted. Single member Council districts must be of substantially equal population with a maximum deviation no greater than 10 percent between the most populated and least populated council member district.
Sugar Land City Council appointed a citizen-led Redistricting Advisory Committee charged with making a recommendation on a redistricting plan to the City Council for their consideration.
Sugar Land’s Redistricting Advisory Committee unanimously approved a recommendation for revised single-member City Council districts in Sugar Land [View News Release]. The recommendation will be presented to City Council on Aug. 21. Ultimately, City Council will decide which redistricting plan is approved.
At-large City Council members will not be affected by redistricting proposals, and redistricting decisions will have no impact on decisions regarding land use or any city services.
City Council is scheduled to hold a workshop on Aug. 28 to discuss the committee's recommendations.
Residents are encouraged to participate during the redistricting process. Meetings will be open to the public and public comments will be received at the beginning of each meeting.
Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Meeting materials are posted following the meeting. Meeting minutes are available following approval.
Note: The recent annexation of the New Territory and Greatwood communities resulted in the temporary assignment of New Territory to District 2 and Greatwood to District 4. This is represented on the above map as 2-I and 4-I, respectively.
