The upcoming Pearland Half Marathon was part of the consent agenda at the March 4 meeting of the Pearland City Council. The inaugural event is planned for March 24 starting at Pearland High School.
After a denial from Brazoria County regarding closure of a part of the route that originally travelled outside of the city’s corporate limits, IRun Productions who are organizing the event in collaboration with Pearland Police Department, City Parks and Recreation Department and Traffic Operations, developed a new route that is entirely in the city.
Council approved the updated race route for the Pearland Half Marathon after it was approved through Police, Traffic Operations and Parks and Rec.
In new business, council approved contracts with businesses for the following projects: John Hargrove Environmental Complex Water Reclamation Facility Expansion Project, the Surface Water Plant, and Shadow Creek Ranch Park Project in Phase II.
