Redistricting

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.

Redistricting Advisory Committee

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.

Committee Meetings

Committee meetings were held from June 25 to Aug. 14. The committee’s work was guided by outside legal counsel, state and federal law and guidelines adopted by City Council.

City Council approved resolution 18-19 that established criteria used in the 2018 redistricting process, created a framework to guide redistricting plans and assisted city efforts to comply with all applicable federal and state laws.
