Sugar Land emergency planners have increased the city’s readiness to Level 2 and activated its emergency operations center to prepare for Hurricane Laura. Sugar Land is a “pass-through” community; this means residents evacuating from coastal areas will be driving through Sugar Land. Local residents should avoid major evacuation routes such as U.S. Highway 59, State Highway 6, U.S. Highway 90A and U.S. Highway 99 as much as possible. While it may not be necessary, residents should plan to shelter in place for several days or more just in case by keeping gas tanks full and stocking up on emergency supplies.
City employees are ready to provide 24/7 response to ensure the continued delivery of essential city services. Weather experts project landfall somewhere between Galveston and Lafayette, Louisiana, early Thursday morning as at least a category 3 hurricane. Based on the current forecast track of a landfall at the Texas/Louisiana border, Sugar Land could expect 3-6 inches of rainfall. The Brazos River remains below flood stage, floodgates operated by Levee Improvement Districts are expected to remain open and storage capacity currently exists in ditches and lakes that hold water during heavy rainfall events. LIDs in Sugar Land are prepared to utilize their pumps if necessary. Flooded streets, damaging winds and power outages are always possible during strong storms. Forecasters warn their confidence in the current track and intensity of the storm is average. Our area is within the cone of probability, and a westward shift remains possible. We should all pay very close attention to the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center, the authoritative sources of weather information. Regardless of the storm’s track, Sugar Land can expect flooded streets, damaging winds and power outages during strong storms. Please help us keep storm drains clear, secure loose items around homes and avoid parking on streets.
The city has taken a number of measures to prepare. Damage assessment teams have been formed. Generators, chainsaw and pumps are ready. City crews are checking storm drains and drainage infrastructure. Vehicles are being moved to high ground, additional fuel has been ordered and high-water vehicles are pre-positioned. Loose equipment has been secured and building prepped. Construction sites in the city have been directed to the do the same. Parks and recreational facilities are being prepared for storm conditions. The city is working with solid waste/recycling providers to pre-plan. The city’s debris removal contractor has been notified to be ready.

Suspension of Board Meetings: Until restrictions are amended to allow group gatherings, in-person board meetings have been suspended. Any necessary board meetings will be held by teleconference. Notice of any teleconference board meetings will be posted on the TownSq app. The meeting notice will include information necessary for owners to participate in the teleconference meeting.
Suspension of Annual Meeting: Under the recommendations received by association attorneys, annual meetings should be suspended until the appropriate authorities deem it safe for people to meet in large groups again. It is not recommended to hold annual meetings via electronic or telephonic means, due to statutory requirements that specifically apply to non-profit corporations and POA's. Election procedures (solicitation of candidates, notice of meeting) will be followed once appropriate authorities have deemed it safe for people to meet in large groups again.
Closure of Common Areas: The swimming pool, clubhouse and tennis court are open with capacity limitations and social distancing restrictions. The playground continues to remain closed at this time.
