Telfair Zoning Application Public Hearing Rescheduled for Sept. 22

Sugar Land, TX - A public hearing on a zoning application for the Tract 5 property – an area located south of U.S. Highway 59 and east of University Boulevard – will be held on Sept. 22 instead of Sept. 13 as originally planned.

Newland Communities informed the City that more time was needed to address feedback provided by the Sugar Land Planning and Zoning Commission on July 28.

“The Planning and Zoning Commission has not acted on the rezoning application,” said Assistant City Manager Jim Callaway. “Based on comments received from Newland, the City does not anticipate that revisions will include any conventional multi-family (apartment) proposals. The hearing will mark the beginning of a long process and an opportunity for the community to make formal comments and present testimony to the Commission.”

Following the public hearing, the Commission will identify any additional work to be addressed prior to making a recommendation to the City Council. The Commission’s deliberation on the proposal will occur at a subsequent meeting.

The Commission will eventually make a recommendation to City Council. If the Commission recommends denial, a super-majority vote is required of City Council to approve the application.

Council will consider the Commission’s recommendation, public input and the City’s comprehensive plan in reaching a final decision. Once Newland’s revisions have been received, the City will finalize the hearing date and post legal notices for the public hearing.

“We encourage all interested citizens to participate in the hearing process,” said Callaway.
