10th Annual State of the City of Sugar Land

Mayor Joe Zimmerman.

The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present the tenth annual State of the City Sugar Land Address focusing on the City’s 2017 accomplishments. The program will be held Monday, February 12th at the Sugar Land Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, located at 16090 City Walk at the corner of U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 6.

Lunch will be served at 11:30 am, followed by a presentation from Mayor Joe Zimmerman of 2017 Sugar Land accomplishments and goals for 2018. Some of the topics covered by Zimmerman include completion of the Annexation of the Greatwood and New Territory communities into the City of Sugar Land; the City’s response and recovery efforts related to Hurricane Harvey; Sugar Land’s recently reaffirmed “AAA” bond rating, a reflection of the city’s strong financial resiliency; the grand opening of the Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land and adjacent plaza; Brazos River Park and festival site grand openings; acquisition of the Central Unit prison site and continued work to update the City’s future Land Use Plan, a document that guides development within the City.

The event is presented by the Governmental Relations Division of the Chamber, which provides members with access to local and state government officials, promotes the understanding of current legislative issues and gives the business community an opportunity for input. This division also provides a forum for discussion of relevant legislative matters, updates members on key issues and provides leadership on legislative agendas. During election years, the division conducts community candidate forums for municipal, school and county elections that provide a fair and unbiased opportunity for attendees to understand the qualifications, positions of the candidates and the key issues of the election.

Sponsorships to the event range from $650 to $2,5000.  Individual reservations are available for $35. Contact Matthew Ferraro at matthew@fortbendcc.org or 281-491-0277. For more information or to make reservations, visit www.FortBendChamber.com.
