Trim your Trees now to comply with safety ordinances!
The City of Pflugerville Ordinances require that trees must hang no less than 8 ft above sidewalks and 14 ft above the street. These ordinances ensure that recreational sidewalk use and emergency vehicle roadway use is not inhibited by tree growth or limbs. It is imperative that homeowners comply and trim trees on their property to Ordinance Standards by November 1, 2016. Starting November 1, homes in violation will receive a door hanger notice two weeks prior to city enforcement trimming. City crews will visit subdivisions and cut trees that do not meet the standards and clearance requirements. City crews will cut trees straight across at the desired height, thus homeowners desiring more aesthetic cuts are encouraged to complete their tree trimming before enforcement begins on November 1. For questions, please call public works at 512-990-6400.
HPN Walking Trail West section (phase 3) Construction
Construction has begun on the West (Phase 3) section of the HPN walking trail. This section of our walking trail is located parallel to Portchester Castle along the drainage channel between Kensington Castle and Windsor Castle. The approximate (not exact) location is indicated in white on the map. Construction is expected to take six weeks. The trail is concrete, 7 feet wide and will meander in one section through trees to provide shade. The sidewalk edge will be a minimum 18” from existing fences. We are also removing dead or dying trees, trimming limbs and removing brush and saplings to encourage growth of healthy trees. To keep your children safe, please ask them to stay away from the construction area and equipment.
HPN Community Park Construction
The construction on the HPN Community Park on the corner of Portchester Castle and Kensington Castle continues to be delayed while we wait on the final permit from the City of Pflugerville. We are actively working with the contractor and the city to get this approval so we can begin construction this Fall.

Be a good neighbor when walking your dog!
When you walk your dog on our trail or on a sidewalk, it’s important to bring a plastic bag and pick up your pet's waste. Pet waste is unsightly, creates odor, and most importantly, your neighbors do not want to clean up after YOUR dog. It's also the law! Not only is this the neighborly thing to do, but picking up pet waste helps keep bacteria and harmful pollutants out of Pflugerville's storm sewers and waterways, which are a part of our drinking supply! Thank you to everyone who is doing their duty and picking up your pet's waste! If you see someone who forgets, please remind them!
