The city of Pflugerville celebrated downtown revitalization efforts with the grand opening of Main Street Plaza on June 10.
Main Street Plaza---a 6,500 square-foot park with a garden, interactive musical area, picnic tables and fountain---is located between City Hall and Hanovers Draught Haus at 100 E. Main Street.
The plaza cost approximately $104,000 to build, city spokesperson Maggie Holman said, including a $100,000 grant from the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation.
Mayor Victor Gonzales said the plaza is designed to be a place for people to eat lunch, sit or de-stress every day.
“It’s a very new piece of Pflugerville that will make a difference and is making a difference,” Gonzales said.
City Council Member Doug Weiss said the opening of the Main Street Plaza will set the future of downtown in motion.
“It’s an important first step. It’s a substantial first step,” Weiss said at the ceremony. “But it’s a long overdue first step in demonstrating our commitment to downtown.”
