Pflugerville Downtown Makeover Plan


A Downtown Vision Plan was brought before the Pflugerville City Council recently and seeks to make the area a destination for area residents, Community Impact reports.

The proposal divides the downtown area into eight districts:  The Entertainment District, Office District, Service District, Dining District and Gateway District.  It would add restaurants, park space, programs and festivals, pedestrian paths, and streetscape improvements.

The plan could be financed through a tax increment reinvestment zone (TIRZ), which uses the additional tax revenue from increasing downtown property values to fund redevelopment.

There is talk of also relocating City Hall out of downtown, possibly to the Sunshine development near SH 130.  Many think that the space City Hall occupies would be better served by a park or civic centerpiece, especially now that so much city business can be conducted online.
