Progress To Date
Focus Area 6.0: Quality of Life and Quality of Place
6. Quality of Life and Quality of Place
6.1 Pursue the development of dynamic, walkable, mixed-use districts
Multiple strategic development plans, such as for the SH35 and Broadway corridors and the Lower Kirby Urban Center, have been developed to influence and promote mixed use and walkable developments across the city. The Ivy at Lower Kirby public amenities were completed in 2021.
In Old Town, the Sullivan Brothers entered into a development agreement with the City for assistance with funding the public infrastructure improvements required for a housing redevelopment. PEDC is partnering with the City to provide the funding for the infrastructure assistance.
6.2 Advance catalytic “anchor” projects to support vibrant, mixed-use districts in Pearland
PEDC continually seeks opportunities to partner with private developers to advance the development of this future initiative for both an indoor amateur sports facility and a hotel + conference center.
6.3 Develop and implement the Parks and Multi-Modal Master Plans
In January 2021, the City adopted the 2020 Parks Recreation, Open Spaces and Trail Master Plan. In addition, the second phase of the Shadow Creek Sports Complex was completed in March 2022.
6.4 Diversify and maintain Pearland’s housing stock
PEDC and the City are working with Sullivan Brothers on a housing development project that will help facilitate a more walkable community in the Old Townsite.
Community Development will address this initiative with more detail in the new Comprehensive Plan update.
