Pearland City Council on July 26 approved the reclassifications of three different properties in the city, two of which were enacted as part of the consent agenda. The third was deliberated more extensively.
The unanimous approval of the zone change of the Old Townsite mixed-use district to a planned development—which was originally also a part of the consent agenda but was removed to be discussed by Pearland City Council—totals 5.6 acres. The parcel is located within the Pearland Old Townsite District, and the zoning change will accommodate a proposed residential development.
The residential development will consist of approximately 65 single-family homes that will be a mixture of bungalows—or one-story single-family homes on 35-by-125-foot lots—and row houses, or two-story single-family homes on 25-by-125-foot lots.
“I think this is going to be a great project that is coming here,” Council Member Alex Kamkar said. “I think it is going to help property values. I think most importantly it is going to bring the American dream to younger families.”
According to agenda documents, the subject properties are located along South Galveston Avenue, South Houston Avenue, South Park Avenue and South Grand Boulevard, which are designated as local streets by the city’s thoroughfare plan.
As a part of the consent agenda, which was also unanimously approved by City Council, 32.67 acres of land at the Stonebridge planned development was reclassified to accommodate a proposed residential development consisting of 57 single-family lots in conjunction with detention ponds and open space. Beazer Homes will be the developer for the property.
The reclassification of 0.72 acres of land from a single-family residential district to office professional district to accommodate an office development was also approved as a part of the consent agenda.
The 0.72 acres of land are located on the southeast corner of English Lakes Drive and Village Drive in Pearland, according to agenda documents.
