Brazoria County
Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Pearland City Council on Monday voted 4-1, with Scott Sherman opposed, to reappoint Ronny Hecht, Christopher S. Klein and Shareen Larmond to the Spectrum Management District Board of Directors.

The item had been tabled at a previous meeting. 

The management district was created through state legislation in 2007.

The city council voted 4-1, with Felicia Kyle opposed, to approve the first reading of a zoning change request for 22.77 acres of property at the northwest corner of FM 518 and Pearland Parkway.

The property will be rezoned from a Planned Development District to a General Business District. The request was made by Beeman Strong for the Settegast family, which is the current owner of the property, and Lyle Henkle for HEB, which applied for the change.

“The applicant is proposing a shopping center on the approximately 23 acre site which would include one large anchor tenant, an HEB Grocery Store, as well as fuel sales, and potentially two smaller retail centers,” Assistant City Manager Mike Hodge said. “The main store would back up to Whispering Winds Apartments, and face towards Pearland Pkwy, with parking in the front.”

The city council voted 4-1, with Ed Thompson opposed, to table the first reading of a zoning change request for a 30-acre parcel of land located in the same tract of property as the land proposed for the development of the grocery store.

The owner of the property, the Settegast family, is proposing to rezone remaining 30 acres of the 53 acre total tract as a Single Family-Residential District. The property is currently part of the Planned Development District.

The city council took no action regarding municipal utility districts. The item was discussed during an executive session.

The city council took no action regarding economic development incentives. The item was also discussed during a closed session.

All other items were approved by unanimous vote. All members were present. Agenda
