  1. It’s a disgrace that in this overheated economy that Pf taxpayers are having to subsidize any more new businesses, when we can’t find enough workers for the businesses we already have. (Remember when nearby In/Out was offering $15/hour to anybody who would work in their hamburger joint when they first opened up?) PCDC should have been disbanded years ago, yet they continue to charge us a sales tax for their counterproductive economic development activities, adding insult to injury. Seriously folks, with all the potential customers in Pflugerville, would COSTCO not have opened a location here in town if it they didn’t get a taxpayer handout? I seriously doubt it. Now we’re going to have even worse traffic problems in that area of town, and Pf officials already gave away most of the future tax benefit! Those Costco development guys are geniuses. (On the bright side, this new Costco deal has to go better than that disastrous religious water park deal that the city bought into just a few years ago, that was supposed to turn Pf into a tourist destination. And what ever became of that billion dollar mixed use development that was supposed to go in the cornfield next to the water park?)

    • Pf Taxpayer Also

      Seriously–get over it. Costco is a boon to our little town. Aside from the jobs and the tax revenue, this store will be a destination for people from Round Rock, Hutto, etc., not to mention Pflugerville residents. In the end, this is a no-brainer.

      That being said, I agree 100% with you about the water park–I saw that one coming a mile away. But a tried and true retail magnet? Don’t lump that in with a trendy amusement park.

  2. Happy in Hutto

    I am happy we are getting a Costco. The only thing I worry about is the traffic. Just getting to Kelly lane is bad enough now. And no way to get around the already slow traffic. Any plans now for the congestion
