After postponing a May transportation bond election due to COVID-19, Pflugerville City Council approved language for three propositions that could appear on the November ballot. If council votes in favor of calling a November bond election at its Aug. 11 meeting, residents will have the opportunity to vote on up to $191.3 million in city projects.

Due to the sticker price of the proposed bond, projects have been divided into three categories: transportation, parks and a recreation center. Voters would be able to vote in favor or against individual propositions.

Transportation projects amount to $101.7 million of the total proposal. Areas of improvement would include city intersections, city neighborhood streets reconstruction, FM 685, Main Street and Immanuel Road, among others.

The city is also considering $42.3 million of parks and recreation projects. City documents detail trail improvements, neighborhood parks, Lake Pflugerville Phase 2 and a destination play space as part of the proposal, among others.

The third proposition under consideration is a $47.3 million recreation and senior center.
