$50M bond election for new parks could come to Sugar Land
SUGAR LAND, TX (KTRK) -- Sugar Land residents may be asked to support a $50 million bond election for new parks this November.
City spokesperson Doug Adolph says Sugar Land is focusing on four projects in response to public feedback for more open spaces.
"We're looking at park land development across the Brazos River as well as in the Tel-Fair area south of US-90A," Adolph said. "We're looking at a complex of hike and bike trails throughout the city that would connect residential areas, parks and the town center area in our business district. And we're looking at a 50-acre festival site that could accommodate large events."
The city's next step is to recruit a citizen bond committee to develop recommendations for the projects.
