Pflugerville residents will have the opportunity to vote on up to $191.3 million in roads and parks projects this November. Pflugerville City Council unanimously approved calls for a November special election that includes three propositions: $101.7 million for transportation projects; $42.3 million for parks projects; and $47.3 million for a proposed senior and recreation center.

Pflugerville initially called for a May transportation bond election in February, before postponing the election in April due to the coronavirus pandemic.

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.

Areas of improvement outlined in the transportation proposition includes city intersections, city neighborhood streets reconstruction, FM 685, Main Street and Immanuel Road, among others. For 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 final proposition applies solely to the recreation center.

Additional information on the bond package up for consideration is available here.


Also included on the November ballot is Pflugerville's regular election for Places 2, 4 and 6 for Pflugerville City Council. Residents will be able to cast their ballot for the three council positions as part of the Nov. 3 election.
