New Interactive Maps Keeping You in the Know

Post Date:07/02/2018 8:01 pm

Have you ever been driving through Pearland when you see a new building going up or a field being cleared and thought "I wonder what that is going to be?” Well now you have the ability to find out what is happening. The City of Pearland has a new interactive mapping system that shows the Commercial Permits and Clearing and Grub Permits in the city limits. 

Developmental Services has received many calls asking just that question, so they collaborated with our GIS department to create an interactive map that maintains up-to-date information on active commercial permits.Try the map for yourself here.

The Clear and Grub permits (orange dots) are for removing all vegetation and trees from land to prepare for building. The Commercial permits (red dots) are used when a business is building a new location. Click the colored dot on the map to see the details of the permit.


The City of Pearland is continuously looking for new ways to leverage information and technology to provide quickly and easily to our residents. If there is something you think would make a good interactive map, send us an email.
