Sugar Land City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to approve a $139,971 contract with HVJ and Associates, Inc. for a pavement management assessment.
HJV and Associates had performed a pavement management consultation in 2005, providing a detailed visual pavement condition analysis and rating for all city streets.
“This information is now used to determine condition and needed repairs for pavement maintenance and to develop a CIP program for the City’s pavement network,” Director of Public Works Mike Goodrum said.
The new contract will allow an update of the 2005 study and include rating data for all city streets.
“Public Works believes the recent drought conditions have accelerated the deterioration curve on many streets and with the annexations and development the total street miles has increased,” Goodrum said.
The city council voted to approve a $75,510 contract with Lord Cultural Resources for completion of a cultural arts strategic plan.
The city council voted to approve, on first reading, an update to the Wastewater Master Plan.
“The current Wastewater Master Plan was adopted in 2004 with a minor update approved in 2007. The proposed 2012 Wastewater Master Plan was prepared to address recent development and to update future development projections,” Director of Utilities Suellen Staggs said. “The plan will provide the city an updated tool for planning wastewater collection and treatment infrastructure improvements necessary to accommodate population growth in the city and extraterritorial jurisdiction. Recommended projects are based on updated system modeling, regulatory requirements, and projected development.”
A public hearing was held prior to approval of the item.
The city council voted to approve, on first reading, the re-zoning of 5.155 acres of land at the Chatham Avenue Park Site and 126.481 acres of land at the Telfair Main Lake from a Single Family Residential Interim District to a standard Single Family Residential District.
The property was annexed into Sugar Land in 2004, and provided an interim zoning classification. The rezoning will provide a permanent classification.
All items were approved. All votes were unanimous with all members present. Agenda
