Pearland City Council and the Planning and Zoning Commission had a joint public hearing Nov. 18 regarding a new mini-storage and warehouse coming to the city. The item regards changing a site's zoning from general business to general commercial, allowing Signature Companies to build an office warehouse at the corner of Magnolia Street and FM 1128.

The plan would also be to install mini-storage next to the warehouse, which will not be discussed until December.

“We own a substantial amount of property south of this off Magnolia and 1128,” said Jennifer Pollack Evans with Signature Companies, who spoke at the meeting. “It seemed like with the zoning of the adjoining property to the north, it being [general commercial] and the amount of retail we have to the south that an office/warehouse-type development would be well suited here.”

Neither council nor the Planning and Zoning Commission had many remarks. However, Council Member Woody Owens requested the applicant look into how many storage places are already in the area.

“I’m just really concerned about how many storage places we are getting in the Pearland area,” Owens said.


No decisions were made. First readings are tentatively scheduled for Dec. 9.
