Property owners east of Wood Street expressed concern to City Council regarding the modified Hill Area Residential (HR-1) zoning district regulations that were adopted in July 2021. City Council asked staff to work with Lakeview property owners to determine next steps, which includes gathering input from property owners on whether this area should be rezoned.
Provide Input by September 17
On August 30, 2021, city staff sent a letter to property owners within the boundary identified on the map to solicit input on whether or not their property should be rezoned from the Hill Area Residential (HR-1) zoning district to the Standard Single-Family Residential (R-1) zoning district. The letter included a paper Rezoning Input Form and a link to an online version of the form that must be completed by September 17, 2021.
The compiled responses from properties along Lakeview Drive (east of Wood Street, refer to map) will be reviewed by staff to determine whether or not to rezone the north, south or both sides of Lakeview Drive.
If you own property in this area and did not receive a letter, please contact Abigail Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 281-253-6464.
Comparing the R-1 vs HR-1 Zoning Districts
All properties within the City of Sugar Land must be placed in a zoning district. Each zoning district has zoning regulations, also referred to as development regulations. Zoning districts and their respective regulations serve to administrate land uses and the physical development of land such as size of buildings, how buildings relate to their surroundings, open spaces, and the street.
