Pearland has built the new monument to create a unique and historic entry point into the city on Pearland Parkway. The city, an active member of the San Jacinto, Texas Historic District, has built the 30 foot tall tower constructed of brick and stone veneer within the median of Pearland Parkway. It includes a nine-point Gateway Star at the top that resembles the star atop the San Jacinto Monument.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Thursday, April 12 at 9am at the UH - Clear Lake Pearland Campus at 1200 Pearland Parkway.
The city says the project was brought together through the efforts of the Economic Alliance Houston Port Region and funds provided by grants from the Houston-Galveston Area Council and Keep Pearland Beautiful.
