of downtown. The city updated its previous 2008 future land usemap at the end of 2021. “The future land use map is a guide that the commission and City Coun- cil should use to make future zone change decisions,” Harbin said. The future land use map is one part of the comprehensive plan, last updated in 1998, which is considered a living document that tells the story of Friendswood, according to Harbin. The new plan will include updates on community facilities, drainage, and the parks and recreation master plan. Additionally, the city has three master-planned communities in the works. The three master-planned communities are the Avalon at Friendswood; Friendswood Trails; and Georgetown, which is still in the planning phase. They are expected to bring a combined 995 lots to the city, but the city still has at least 25% of land mass to develop, Kabiri said. “Even though these projects are monumental for Friendswood given our history, there’s still projects yet to be undertaken,” Kabiri said.
