What is the Land Use Plan?

The Land Use Plan is a high level document that outlines policy direction and guidance for development, redevelopment and land use decisions.  The Plan is published as Chapter 6 of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.  The Plan furthers the Comprehensive Plan’s overall vision and sets out a specific land use vision and goals for the city and outlines actions that will achieve those goals to ensure Sugar Land continues to thrive.  The Land Use Plan is not zoning or a regulatory document; however, the city’s zoning regulations are guided by and must be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan. In fact, the city is required to have a Comprehensive Plan if it has zoning.
