League City is seeking resident input on how to develop its remaining land with a new tool launched within its League City Listens platform.

The gist

Launched Jan. 8, Talk About Town is accessed through League City Listens’ webpage and provides information on local business updates and newly opened businesses. It also currently hosts a survey to gather feedback about what type of business development residents would like to see in League City.

Debuted in summer 2023, League City Listens is an interactive digital tool providing a way for citizens to engage with upcoming projects, plans and initiatives in the city.

Survey questions include:
  • Would you like to see more restaurants?
  • Would you like to see more employment opportunities in League City?
  • Would you like to see more entertainment opportunities in League City?
As of Feb. 16, 40 participants have taken the survey, said Amber Pedigo, manager of community engagement and special projects. Pedigo added that the survey will remain open for another three months.

Survey respondents also have the option to rank their preferences for the type of development they’d like to see from least to most important. So far, the most popular categories have been retail, restaurants, developed parks and family-oriented entertainment, Pedigo said.

“It’s a tool that we can use to give to our elected officials and to our department heads that they can use as League City continues to grow,” Pedigo said.

The platform also includes a business locator map allowing users to discover new businesses in League City.

Users can also submit questions or concerns to League City’s director of economic development who will then provide an open-face response that will be visible to everyone, Pedigo said.

In their own words

Resident feedback from Talk About Town won’t be the sole driving force behind how League City develops the remaining 40% of its undeveloped land, but it will be a tool the city uses to guide development strategies, Pedigo said.

League City is expected to double within the next 10 to 15 years, according to the city’s website.
