Land Use Forum speakers announced for Feb. 12

The third session in the Land Use Forum series – Town Square and Beyond: Creating Places for the Community – is scheduled for Feb. 12, at 6 p.m., at Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Boulevard Drive.

The session will focus on understanding what it takes to create places that constantly attract people and how surrounding land uses can benefit from creating places for the community to gather.

Speakers will include Robert Tullis, vice president and director of design for GID Development and Robert Gibbs, president of Gibbs Planning Group and director at the Urban Retail Institute.

The presentations will highlight areas important to the near- and long-term success of Sugar Land and the session will include community roundtable discussions and opportunities for the public to provide input.

The Land Use Forum is a six-part speaker series highlighting land-use topics such as housing choices, development of activity centers and redevelopment of aging commercial areas in Sugar Land.

The series is open to the public and will include discussions important to the City’s ongoing efforts to update its Land Use Plan, a document that provides policy guidance and identifies future efforts necessary to accomplish the City’s land use goals and objectives. The speaker series is a way to engage the community and get them thinking about the types of developments appropriate for our City in the future.  Participation and feedback from a wide variety of people in the community is important.  The speakers for the forums are recognized experts in their fields.

Those unable to attend the Land Use Forum sessions may watch via a live broadcast on SLTV 16 or online at and submit questions during the event.  Previous forums may also be viewed online.
