Trail Gap Construction Begins the week of April 18 across Pflugerville
Citywide trail gap construction begins April 18 on three sidewalk connections, a pedestrian bridge and five trail gap segments as identified in the city Trails Master Plan and funded by the $25 million Parks General Obligation Bond approved by the voters in 2014.
In March the City Council awarded a construction contract for the projects. Throughout the construction the City’s contractor will move equipment and crews from one location to another starting with Gilleland Creek Trail near the Brookhollow Trail and the Pfluger Park Loop Trail. Construction at each location should last a week (weather permitting) and door notifications will be distributed to residents adjacent to the construction.
The project includes a pedestrian bridge connecting from Settlers Valley Trail to Mountain View Drive, five trail gap segments and three sidewalk connections. The trail gaps were prioritized by the Parks and Recreation Commission for consideration in the 2014 bond. The new trails include segments along Gilleland Creek Trail from Parkview Drive to Sunny Oak Court, and additional trail segments along Dessau Rd to Bohls Loop, and Brookhollow Trail to Greenbrook Parkway.

City Council approve adding senior projects to the Community Development Block Grant program
At Tuesday's Council meeting, the second and final of two public hearings on a Community Development Block Grant program resolution passed allowing the city to allocate future CDBG funds to senior programs.
Over the last few months city staff have conducted an online survey and visited with the Pflugerville Seniors group at the Pflugerville Recreation Center to gather feedback from seniors on what programs and projects they'd like to see from future grant funding. The Council action Tuesday allowed senior projects to be a part of the plans, and actual senior projects meeting national objectives of the program will be considered in May and June for the 2015/2016 action plans. It is not too late to take the online survey and provide feedback on senior programs. Visit www.pflugervilletx.gov/cdbg to take it today.
