Pearland City Council
by Garrett Bryce
Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to enter into a development agreement with MHI Partnership, Ltd. for the Hickory Slough storm water detention facility.

Under the agreement, MHI will allow the city to designation portions of the company’s property as spoil sites for the water detention project, and for MHI to share in the cost of design and construction of a portion of Hughes Ranch Road between Stone Road and Max Road.

The city will provide regional detention credits for two commercial sites located along FM 518, as part of the agreement.

The city council voted to amend the city’s contract with KS Management regarding the company’s performance agreement with the Pearland Economic Development Corporation.

The amendments will extend by two months the date required for the company to receive its certificate of occupancy and operate a Kelsey-Seybold Corporate Office facility to be located along the Shadow Creek Ranch Parkway.  The amendment will also extend the date by which the company is to have 600 workers employed at the site.

The extension places the required date for a certificate of occupancy at May 31, 2013, and operation of the facility, with 600 full-time employees, at August 31, 2013.

The city council voted to grant a conditional use permit for 0.6984 acres of property in the 7900 block of Broadway to allow for the operation of a minor auto repair facility in the General Business District.

The city council voted to appoint Tony Carbone to the Development Authority Board of Pearland.  The item was discussed during an executive session.

All items were approved.  All votes were unanimous with all members present.  Agenda
