Community Development's quarterly report highlights successes
The second quarter of FY 2017 was a time of continued growth for many of the Community Development division. Compared to the first quarter, the department saw an increase in zoning cases, single family permits and the number of plat applications.
High development activity continued, with the total reported valuation of all construction projects permitted in the second quarter amounting to $192 million. Additionally, 100 percent of the commercial permits in this quarter were reviewed in 15 days or less for first reviews and 10 working days or less to follow up.
Planning staff reviewed 41 site plans, 175 commercial build-outs and tenant occupancy permits, 68 sign permits and 207 residential permits. Permit reviews resulted in 88 site inspections. The second quarter of FY 2017 also saw 22 permits issued for commercial additions/alterations, 20 build-outs and 8 new commercial buildings for a total reported valuation of more than $55,450,000.
Continuous planning and development is part of an effort to ensure a healthy local economy and sustainable infrastructure, which is one of City Council’s Strategic Priorities. Read the latest Community Development Report to find out more about Pearland’s strategic growth.
