I have not read the code completely, however I would like to make one important suggestion regarding street parking.
A large number of residential areas in Sugar Land have common mail boxes as one standing mail delivery system. These are used to deliver mail to the neighborhood homes. Many times the mail boxes are blocked by parked cars and the mail delivery person does not deliver the mail, sometime for several days!
I suggest that the city make a rule to make it illegal and a parking violation to park cars in front of the mail box. The car owner (or driver) should get a ticket for this violation. This will assure that the mail is delivered properly.
If this is already a law then it should be publicized and implemented.

If the Sugar Land Planning and Zoning Commission recommends to divide New Territory into multiple zones, the Commission owes the New Territory residents an explanation on what the reasons are, what the benefits to the neighborhood, and the details on protection of their property values.

Regarding the zoning, my preference is to keep entire New Territory in the same zone. I believe in doing so Our Children would have one voice and would be able to better serve Sugar Land as a one community. In this regard they will be able to escalate issues to their one representative in Sugar Land City Council. Being together will allow future generations to get more involved and contribute to the greater good for the city and country.

Hi, What about new elementary school for Riverstone from FBISD facility master plan discussion? There is only one land available at Avalon at Riverstone. Please use this land to build a new elementary school for Riverstone. Commonwealth Elementary School is at utilization of 138% in Fall 2018 school year. There are total of SIX portables at Commonwealth Elementary School. Two of the additional portables are located in the middle of field and playground. Thank you for your consideration. Thanks you!!

What is the eventual plan for the large, temporary-looking asphalt parking lot adjacent to the Smart Financial Center?
Twice I have publicly asked our mayor this question, both in a pre-election meet-and-greet, and recently in a development presentation given to an overflowing crowd at the University Library. Both times I received no real answer -- and at the second event that caused quite a negative reaction from the attending crowd.
It begs the question: Why isn't that parking lot concrete? The Smart Financial Center is certainly meant to last for many decades; why wouldn't its parking lot be made to last, also?
It is well-known that our Planning and Zoning group is bitterly unhappy with putting any restrictions on the number of apartments in the Tract 5 development district -- as far as they're concerned, the more the merrier; the taller the better. The surrounding neighborhood residents hold largely the opposite opinion.
I strongly anticipate that the following scenario will ensue: Sometime in the not-so-distant future, when Tract 5 is finished being populated with hotels, convention centers, shared-use buildings and what-not, that is, when it's "all built-out," someone will conveniently realize that all those cars parking on the thin asphalt at the Smart Financial Center would fit nicely into a multi-story parking garage built right next to the hall, freeing up a HUGE area of land that -- voilà -- is perfectly suited to become the high-density housing site P&Z so transparently lusts for.
That's why the parking lot isn't concrete.
This is the elephant in the room. City Council needs to finally live up to its responsibility to its constituents, and tell us the truth about their plans for this parking area and its future.

1. 3rd paragraph of the draft LUAC:
"LUAC clarified language throughout the Plan to reduce the opportunity for their intent to be misinterpreted and lead to unintended negative consequences."
Please give some language examples.
2. 4th paragraph of the draft LUAC:
"As such, the LUAC’s final recommendation includes maintaining the proportion of single-family to multi-family (88 percent to 12 percent, respectively) – clarifying the ratio is the community’s vision today and in the foreseeable future. "
Please provide credible reference for the 88% to 12%.

What an amazing piece of work. Thanks to our citizen led PARCS Board for their effort to deliver a plan for moving Sugar Land forward as a great place for all to live and enjoy the out of doors. Bravo!

The plan recognizes that more staff will be needed to support the recommendations for additional programming, events, amenities, etc.; however, it does not include specifics. Using benchmark research on other similar communities and recommendations from other parks and recreation directors, the report should provide general recommendations on the number of full, part-time and seasonal staff required. It also should include recommendations on an organizational chart to define responsibilities of staff as the organization and systems continues to grows.
