Strategic Plan


In 2019, the Pearland Economic Development Corporation (PEDC), along with local partners in government, education, healthcare and business, embarked on a collaborative community and economic development strategic planning process to make the community a more prosperous, successful, and vibrant place to live, work, and do business.  The resulting Pearland Prosperity strategic plan, built upon the Pearland 20/20 strategy, which the community developed through a similar process in 2013 and has helped catalyze numerous community improvements in recent years.

At the center of the Pearland Prosperity framework are two Community Goals that broadly identify the desired outcomes of Pearland’s holistic economic development effort. These goals are:

  1. Economic growth and diversification: Provide opportunities for residents to prosper and enhance Pearland’s fiscal sustainability through a holistic approach to economic development
  2. A community of choice in Greater Houston:  Ensure Pearland’s quality of life and quality of place continue to attract and retain diverse individuals and families

These goals can be pursued through a number of Strategic Initiatives grouped into seven high-level Focus Areas. Each Initiative corresponds to an action, program, effort, or investment that can help move Pearland toward its desired future. The Focus Areas provide organizational clarity and readily communicate to a wide variety of audiences the issues that Pearland will seek to address through collective action.  These Focus Areas are: Business Development, Business Formation and Early-Stage Growth, Site Development, Corridors, Infrastructure and Mobility, Quality of Life and Quality of Place, and Workforce and Talent.
