Sugar Land Welcomes Greatwood, New Territory to City Family

Sugar Land, TX ­– Greatwood and New Territory are officially part of the city of Sugar Land as of 12:01 a.m. today.

The annexation of these communities was a deliberate, thoughtful process that required 10 years of planning, thought and public feedback. Strategic partnership agreements between the city and municipal utility districts provided the contractual commitments for the annexation to take place, fund itself and have no financial impact to the rest of the city.

All city of Sugar Land residents will receive the same level of quality services and have access to all of the city’s resources. 

Greatwood and New Territory are premier communities with first-class infrastructure; beautiful parks; carefully planned, well maintained neighborhoods; and quality retail and commercial areas that are consistent with Sugar Land’s commitment to excellence.  These areas will not only enhance the quality and beauty of the city, but have grown the city to approximately 117, 869 residents.

Based on the collaborative efforts between the city and leaders of both communities, the annexation was a seamless transition. The city is committed to providing full services on day one and welcomes Greatwood and New Territory residents to the Sugar Land family.
