Sugar Land
Sugar Land to Update Economic Development Plan
(August 2010) Chabin Concepts has teamed with Austin Consulting, Applied Economics and Marketek to conduct a comprehensive update to the economic development plan for Sugar Land, Texas.
As one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Houston metropolitan area, Sugar Land has enjoyed the distinction of sustained business growth even during the economic downturn. CDS Market Research reports that Sugarland has reached “Regional Employment Status,” and the area ranks on many lists, including Best Places to Raise a Family: The Top 100 Affordable Communities.
Consequently, this update to the 2001 plan is not about problem solving so much as continuing the momentum. The research phase will explore such questions as:  
  • Are our targets correct?  
  • Are we built out?
  • Should we create a redevelopment authority?  
  • Have we reached critical mass for retail markets?  
  • How can we diversify and enhance our sales tax revenues?  
  • In what ways can we leverage our visitor assets and entertainment venues?  
  • How can we change old perceptions of Sugar Land to what is currently happening that is new and exciting?  
  • What new policies are necessary to support economic development?  
  • What systems can we implement to measure benchmarks and track the effectiveness of our programs?  
  • How can we diversify our economy?  
The plan will address the areas of basic industry, retail, commercial, redevelopment and tourism, and will include a full implementation guide, including budget and templates.
