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 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 will hold a workshop and review the draft ordinance on January 8, then take action on the ordinance in the next couple of months.
Agendas and meeting materials are available prior to the meetings. Meeting presentations and videos of discussion are available after the meeting.
