I strongly oppose the new Sugar Land draft land use policy. The city council appears to have overlooked (or don't care) the voters who put them in office. The passage of this document would be a detriment to our quality of life & distract form the very reason we moved to Sugar Land. Please do no let this pass

I strongly oppose the updated Land Use Policy and the proposed 900 high-density apartments that are planned for construction at Highway 59 and University. My family chose to live in Sugar Land because of its suburban environment. We urge that you dump the updated plan because it does not take into consideration the negative impact that it would have on our quality of life and property values. It seems quite evident that the Sugar Land City Council is much more interested in pleasing developers than representing the taxpayers. Keep Sugar Land suburban and maintain our quality of life! Remember that your vote will be a matter of public record. We will not forget whom you CHOOSE to represent.

We, two voters in the household strongly REJECT this high density population policy. Sugarland is already experiencing issues like heightened crime due to many debatable reasons and the law enforcement is not able to keep up.

We reject the plan to allow for more multi-family dwellings within the limits of Sugar Land. The allure of this city is due to the sense of community which exists because of the single-family homes and limited density. The multi-family homes and apartments will only benefit the developers who are only interested in cashing in on the appeal of this city.

The new, updated land use plan that allows dense, urban development, is agenda-driven, not market-driven. The fact that citizens in Coppell and Plano TX, Cary, NC, Bradley Co. TN, and many communities in CA are fighting this same development push, attests to this. I demand you decision-makers stand up for the citizens you serve, REJECT the updated land use plan, retain the current 2005 land use plan. Always remember, the names of the city manger, his office staff, all planners involved, mayor and city council, developers will be attached to this decision, these are the responsible parties for whatever decision is made regarding the land use plan. Choose wisely.

Sugar Land is a great place to live and raise a family. We want it to remain that way.
The reported contemplation of a 900-unit apartment project would be detrimental to maintaining that quality. If the proposed changes to “land use policies” open the door for such development, I and two other voters in my household are solidly opposed to them.
I ask that you keep in mind this statement included in the current adopted policies, “The proven advantages of single family neighborhoods over high density multi-unit dwelling forms has led to Sugar Land retaining its highly desirable small town atmosphere.”
Do not allow increased development of high density/multi-family project.

I strongly oppose the change of the land use policies. I am strongly against the plan of allowing high-density multi-family apartments built in Sugar Land.

The draft land use policy is completely unacceptable,wrong and ridiculous. City officials please resign.

We totally reject the draft Land Use Plan. This plan would completely change the original plan for Sugar Land as a family oriented community, in particular, its neighborhood atmosphere and community values. In addition, this plan would make the already over-crowded schools even more crowded.

We are totally against to some of the City of Sugar Land’s Draft Land Use vision related to increasing multi-family homes ( strongly opposed to the 900 apartments) in Sugar Land.
