DALLAS - The Houston suburb of Sugar Land hopes to attract a minor league baseball team, an art museum, and a convention center-hotel to a 52-acre cultural entertainment district along the Brazos River.

The City Council is considering an election for November on a variety of funding options for the district, including an increase in the citywide hotel tax to 9% from 7%, a fee on parking and tickets sold in the district, and possible redirection of an existing 0.5% sales tax for economic development.
