I have lived in Pearland my entire life and have seen this small town change drastically. It saddens me a great deal. The major problems are down by 288. I live on the other end, closer to Friendswood where I still feel safe. I hardly ever shop down at 288 and my mother, who lives close to down there, shops near BAYBROOK, instead of "Ghetto" 288.I have been to the Houston area many times on business and pleasure-we were married in Galveston in 2006-anyways I had Pearland on my list of locales to relocate to however after viewing these comments AND having been to Pearland and seeing its proximity to S. Houston I always wondered how successful Pearland is in stopping some of the thuggery that resides in S. Houston. In addition to Pearland I have looked at the Walden on Lake Houston in Humble, Katy, Clear Lake, and Cypress. I am African American with a wife and an infant daughter. We are both college administrators. Any tips, suggestions, ect that you can offer I will appreciate it. Thanks!
What happend to Pearland??????????
