Sign Ceremony to Commemorate Historic Annexation

Sugar Land, TX ­– The city of Sugar Land will join representatives of Greatwood and New Territory on Dec. 11 to unveil new population signs.

The events are planned to celebrate the annexation of both communities on Dec. 12 at midnight, a historic milestone for Sugar Land that will increase its population to approximately 117,869.    

The ceremony in Greatwood is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. on the esplanade near the community’s sign at the entrance of Greatwood Parkway at U.S. Highway 59. A similar ceremony will follow in New Territory at 12:30 p.m. in front of the community’s sign on the corner of New Territory Boulevard and Homeward Way.

Homeowner association board members, residents and senior city staff members will join City Council at each ceremony, with the mayor scheduled to provide brief remarks welcoming the new residents of Greatwood and New Territory to the city.

The process for the annexation of the Greatwood and New Territory began in November 2007 and is the result of years of thoughtful, deliberate planning; extensive public input; and a strong partnership between the city and elected officials in the communities.

The city is committed to excellence in the delivery of public services for current residents, as well as its future residents who live in the Greatwood and New Territory communities. 

“We’re excited to welcome and begin providing the high-quality public services for which we are known to the residents of New Territory and Greatwood on Dec. 12,” said City Manager Allen Bogard.

There will be no increase in costs or reduction in services to current city residents, and services to the annexed areas will be funded with money set aside during the last 10 years specifically for this purpose.
