Like other communities in and around thriving Houston, Pearland has grown at an extraordinary rate over the past two decades, transitioning from a rural agriculture town of 19,000 to a bustling suburban community that is approaching 90,000. The city has benefited tremendously from the region’s strong economy and the resulting growth, in the way of substantial commercial investment, a larger tax base, low unemployment and an influx of educated young professionals.
