What is a Comprehensive Plan?

The Comprehensive Plan is a document that guides public policy in terms of the development of transportation, utilities, land use, recreation, development and others. Having a plan provides the City with the opportunity to address issues related to growth and service provision in a proactive, coordinated manner that promotes the health, safety, and general welfare of residents. The topics in the Comprehensive Plan include Growth and Infrastructure, Mobility, Housing and Neighborhoods, Economic Development, Parks and Amenities, Land Use and Character Plan, and an Implementation Plan.


Pearland's first Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 1968, and has been updated in 1978, 1988, 1993, and 1999. In 2004, limited additions were made to the Comprehensive Plan to include topics that had not been addressed before. These topics included housing, community character, mixed uses, and others. In 2010, only the Future Land Use Map was reviewed in-house with respect to vacant land and some changes were made.
