The Pflugerville Downtown Action Plan received an update at a recent City Council meeting, charting a course for the future of downtown Pflugerville.

Originally adopted in 2018, the plan is a strategic plan and budgetary tool that outlines projects the city should pursue with the goal of revitalizing downtown.

Council approved an update to the plan Feb. 8 that establishes several immediate, short-term and long-term goals for downtown.

Among the immediate priorities established in the updated plan is development of the Downtown East Project, a 29-acre development on East Pecan Street that is planned to include a recreation center and a new City Hall.

Council approved a professional services agreement for the project at a recent meeting.

Other immediate and short-term objectives outlined in the plan include conducting a downtown drainage study and developing a streetscape master plan to guide projects related to pedestrian spaces and sidewalks.

Some longer-term goals included in the plan are extending Oxford Drive, creating a public parking garage and integrating public art downtown.

The full plan is available for viewing on the city's website.
