“Sugar Land has been a wonderful place to live and work,” Glynn said. “It was a very hard decision, but I have decided to accept a position with a smaller City. Sugar Land will continue to be home for me and my family.”
Glynn joined the City of Sugar Land in 1995 as city engineer. She was later promoted to executive director of community development and director of strategic planning before accepting her current assignment as assistant city manager in 2005.
During Glynn’s tenure, the City grew from 45,097 residents in 1995 to the current population of 84,511. Glynn provided leadership for a number of important projects during her tenure, including: • the opening of First Colony Mall; • the completion of annexation for First Colony, a master planned community that encompasses about 7,500 acres in Sugar Land; • the expansion of U.S. Highway 59; • the development of Sugar Land Town Square and Sugar Land City Hall; • the development of the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences satellite facility in Telfair; and, • numerous development activities such as Avalon, Brazos Landing, Riverstone and Telfair.
“The City has had great mayors and council members and an outstanding staff,” she said. “I feel very blessed to have worked with such a dedicated and service-focused organization. I am truly grateful for the opportunities afforded me here in Sugar Land.”
