I'm looking to relocate because of work and weather. How is Sugar Land for families?
Ideally, we'd want to have a small amount of land with privacy (3-5 acres), yet close to ammenities (20-25mins).
The main points we're looking for are:
-Safe, non-sketchy area.
-Good economy for work, specifically housing/building.
-A balance of privacy and relative closeness to civilization.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

3 -5 acres in Sugar Land? What's your budget?

If you have several million to spend than you'll have no problem.

I lived there for 15 years. It's a great place to raise a family... IMHO, the best in the Houston area. If you want land you might need to go a little farther west to Richmond/Rosenberg, but you'd still be close. No place is 100% safe anymore, but Sugar Land's about as safe as it gets, and you're still 30 minutes from all the attractions and amenities of Houston. Sugar Land offers a lot as far as shopping, dining, and even some entertainment, though, so you hardly even need to venture much father very often.

3-5 acres? Probably not in SL, but maybe in some of the further reaches of Rosenberg or Richmond.

You can get acreage in Richmond off FM359 and it's very nice. You aren't getting 3-5 acres in Sugar Land unless you have a few million.

Our budget is 200k. I was more looking at the general around in and around Sugar Land, not just the city (town?) Itself.
How far from ammenities are Richmond and Rosenburg? What are they like?

200k barely gets you a shack in a good area much less a big house on acreage. SL is already 30-45 minutes commute to Houston so do you mean within 20-25 minutes of SL?

Outer parts of richmond. The non developed areas zoned to the Lamar Consolidated High school might be possible. Not 4 acres but maybe 2.

Would 3-4 acres be more reasonable in those areas then? I'd want to be 20-25 to SL, not Houston proper.
My main want is privacy but not out in the boonies where there isn't any shopping for 30 minutes around.
