Have any warrants? Settle them now, before the Great Texas Warrant Roundup
Have unpaid tickets? Have you received a Class C warrant for traffic, zoning, animal or noise issues or a code violation? Representatives of law enforcement agencies and courts statewide including Pflugerville, will participate in the Great Texas Warrant Roundup which is slated for Saturday, March 5.
Starting February 19, the city will mail out courtesy notices to alert residents with outstanding warrants to settle them by March 5 to avoid the embarrassment of being arrested from your homes or places of employment. The roundup is designed to target thousands of defendants with traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code and higher charge warrants from more than 300 participating jurisdictions.
The statewide Great Texas Warrant Roundup effort actively serves outstanding arrest warrants. Each year more than 100,000 warrants are cleared. The 2015 Warrant Roundup had a continued success with 144,134 warrants filled and $28,240,704 gross statewide.
In November 2014, the Pflugerville voters approved of the issuance of General Obligation Bonds for a variety of parks & recreation facilities, including the development of a new sports complex. In October of 2015, some of these funds were used to purchase approximately 243 acres of land on the east side of town and off of Cameron Rd for a new Community Park & Sports Complex. The City is now in the first stages of creating a Master Plan for this new park and developing some initial practice space. The park will be planned for development in phases and will serve the immediate and future needs for sports facilities and also provide passive/natural amenities.
Public meetings will be held on:
• February 24 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Pflugerville Public Library, 1008 W. Pfluger St.
• February 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Falcon Point Amenity Center, 19015 Falcon Pointe Blvd.
The City of Pflugerville is seeking input from various local organizations on how to best serve them with the future facilities and programs offered at the new Community Park & Sports Complex.
At the meeting residents will share their vision for the park and help provide input on the community’s recreation and sport needs.

City hosts meeting on Transit Development Plan February 22
The public is invited to a public meeting on February 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pflugerville Public Library, 1008 W Pfluger Street, to discuss survey results on the Transit Development Plan and provide additional feedback on public transit options in Pflugerville.
City staff are working with representatives from Capital Metro and a consultant, URS, for a Transit Development Plan to outline future commuter and transit opportunities for Pflugerville residents.
"More than 300 residents have taken the online transit survey and provided us with feedback on public transit options," Assistant City Manager Trey Fletcher said. "There are a variety of public transit options and Pflugerville is planning for our future by looking at growth patterns, our roadways and the feedback from residents on various transit options from park-and-ride to rail."
The transit plan will enable the city to coordinate transit planning efforts for the city and identify opportunities for collaboration with Capital Metro as well as adjacent communities.
The open house is at 6:30 p.m. with a presentation at 7 p.m. Learn more about the project at Pftransitplan.org and attend the meeting February 22.
