Gateway Signage Master Plan
In 2018, the Azimuth Group, Inc. (AGI) was retained by the City to support the planning, facilitation, and documentation of an intensive strategic planning workshop.

Strategic objectives, or tasks, that were identified under this strategic theme included: defining and marketing a compelling Angleton brand, attracting new commercial development, and supporting quality residential growth.

Parkland Dedication Ordinance Revision
Public park and recreation areas are valuable assets that advance the public’s health, safety and welfare. The Parkland Dedication Ordinance recognizes that parkland dedication is a fair, reasonable and uniform method of financing these assets that does not impose an unfair burden on new or existing development. The intent is to require new development to pay its proportionate costs that are associated with providing new or expanded parks and conservation areas, so they are borne by the new homeowners who are responsible for creating the additional demand. Staff has hired Dr. Crompton from Texas A&M to revise the City of Angleton’s Parkland Dedication ordinance. The Parks & Recreation Board has approved the revised parkland dedication ordinance and it is currently under legal review before it is presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council for approval. For more information about the Parkland Ordinance revision contact Megan Mainer, email@example.com.
