The inaugural Community Guide, tailored to Sugar Land and Missouri City, will be in mailboxes Jan. 11. Our goal is to provide residents with comprehensive information to serve as a helpful resource throughout the year.

Inside this issue you will find a guide to local shopping and dining options, transportation updates and important information to know for Sugar Land, Missouri City and Fort Bend ISD.

Our cover story this month takes a closer look at developments slated to pop up in the Imperial area of Sugar Land over the next couple of years. We also provide some brief insight into six other newsworthy topics that readers will want to follow in Sugar Land, Missouri City and FBISD in 2018.

One difference readers may notice is the lack of an Impacts section in this issue. Rest assured, the listings will be back next month. In the meantime, please feel free to send your business news our way.

We hope this guide will help you start the new year feeling informed and serve as a valuable source of information until 2019.
