In recent years, residents and property owners in The Hill have voiced their concern regarding the increased redevelopment of houses in The Hill. In addition, the recently adopted Land Use Plan recommends a project for the City to engage with the neighborhood to explore the topic further. The purpose of the project is to establish a vision for the character of The Hill neighborhood and determine whether additional development standards are desired in order to maintain the character of the neighborhood.
On September 18, 2018, City Council appointed The Hill Neighborhood Steering Committee via Resolution Number 18-30. The Committee will help draft and provide guidance on the redevelopment vision for The Hill and serve to champion that vision based on neighborhood input.
The following Quick Reference Guide pulls excerpts from the Development Code for The Hill residential zoning district HR-1. This guide is not a substitute to the regulations found in the Development Code and Code of Ordinances.
Residents and property owners of The Hill are encouraged to participate in the public engagement process.
The City of Sugar Land and The Hill Neighborhood Steering Committee invite The Hill community to attend a public meeting to discuss the vision for the character of The Hill neighborhood.
