Pearland City Council voted unanimously to approve a one-year, $385,530 destination marketing agreement with the Pearland Chamber of Commerce.
Under the agreement, the chamber will “furnish facilities and personnel; develop marketing, advertising, solicitation and promotional programs; coordinate marketing, advertising, solicitation, and promotional programs for the purpose of attracting visitors, tourists, conventions, etc. to the city”.
The city council voted unanimously to award a $3,474,998 contract to Lazer Construction Company, Inc. for the construction of the Business Center Drive Project.
“The Business Center Drive project will complete the extension of a four lane roadway between Broadway and County Road 59, improving mobility for businesses in the corridor and providing a secondary thoroughfare to alleviate traffic at the Pearland Town Center area,” City Manager Bill Eisen said.
The city council voted unanimously to award a $367,750 contract to Alcott, Inc., doing business as TCH, for construction of the BellaVita Waterline Interconnect.
“The city has experienced water age issues in the Bella Vita and Villa Verde subdivisions, which will be alleviated by providing an inter-connect for improved circulation of the system,” Eisen said. “In addition, the city purchases water from the Clear Brook City MUD, and this inter-connect will eliminate the need and the cost of future water purchases from this source.”
The city council voted unanimously to award a $649,748 contract to Cobb, Fendley & Associates, Inc. for engineering services associated with the Shadow Creek Ranch Park Project.
According to Eisen, Phase 1 of the proposed project include elements such as eight lighted softball/baseball fields, one soccer field, six volleyball courts, parking, a hike and bike trail around the fields and a lawn amphitheater for special events. Two later phases are planned which will include additional ball and soccer fields, tennis and basketball courts, and possible water feature elements.

“As in the past, the proposed ordinance will allow for notice of the proposed zoning in the Pearland Reporter News before the 10th day before the public hearing date,” City Attorney Darrin Coker said. “In addition, staff will be meeting with residents of Municipal Utility District 4 before the public hearing regarding the zoning issues and to answer any questions they may have.”
