Community meeting scheduled for Sugar Land City’s next major park

An informational meeting has been scheduled for Dec. 13 to discuss proposals for a citywide park located on 63 acres south of U.S. Highway 90A and west of State Highway 6 near Easton Avenue and Chatham Avenue.

The meeting will be held at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North, and begins at 6 p.m.

The city is creating the concept plan for the community park in Telfair.  The parkland also includes a two-acre historic cemetery.

The project proposal includes passive and active elements such as cricket, lacrosse, tennis, adult soccer, water features, playgrounds and more.

The information meeting on Dec. 13 builds on a public feedback period that resulted in suggestions from more than 1,200 people.

“Our citizens told us what they’d like to see at this park, and we’re listening,” said City Manager Allen Bogard. “It’s a great example of citizen engagement.  We’ll continue to look to our citizens as we seek their feedback on future parks projects.”

A consulting firm was hired in August to perform a preliminary engineering report.  As part of the process, the City conducted a communitywide online survey to solicit citizen input for programming at the park.
