Sidewalks - Vehicle Parking
Sidewalks are designed and installed to provide pedestrians an area to walk outside of the roadway, keeping pedestrians and vehicular traffic separate. When someone parks their vehicle in a manner that blocks a sidewalk, it causes a dangerous  situation forcing pedestrians to walk in the roadway to get around.
 
It is for this reason that the State and City have laws making parking blocking a sidewalk illegal. 
 
Please share with your friends and family to help spread the word about this offense and let's all do our part to make Pflugerville and Highland Park North safer.
 
 
 
Please Keep Our Trail and Parks Clean!
Our trail is carry in - carry out - and that includes dog poop and water bottles!  If you are visiting one of our parks, please dispose of trash in a designated receptacle.  
• No Motorized Vehicles: For safety reasons, motorized vehicles (scooters, ATVs, motorcycles, motorized bicycles, etc.) are NOT permitted on any HPN Walking trail or in the common areas such as the detention pond, drainage channels or playgrounds. Mobility scooters and powered wheelchairs in use by a disabled person are allowed.
• Bikes: Please slow down where the access sidewalks and trail meet so you do not accidentally hit a pedestrian. Please slow down and let pedestrians know you are there when passing them on the trail, especially when passing from behind. Pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way.
• Please keep out of the area under the bridges, drainage channels and detention pond. These are flood and erosion control areas and not safe areas for people or pets. Fires are strictly prohibited in all HPN common areas with the exception of the charcoal grills provided at the Amenity Area.
• When you walk your dog on our trail, in our parks or on a sidewalk, by law, a leash is ALWAYS REQUIRED.  DO NOT let your dogs run free in our parks, on the trail or in the detention pond. There is a dog park located in the Stonehill Park if you would like to let your dog off the leash.  You are also responsible to PICK UP your pet's waste.  Your neighbors do not want to clean up after YOUR dog.  
• There is a dog waste station located on the trail near the Portchester Castle Park for your convenience when using the trail.  When walking your dog in other locations, please bring a bag with you.

Tree Maintenance
July through January is the best time of year to trim back oak tree branches.  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. 
In Texas, typically the best months to plant trees are October and November as the temperature is cool and the tree has time to establish before rigors of summer. When planting a tree, you might use tree wrap, supports and stakes. When planted, trees might benefit from wraps, support ties and poles to help the tree withstand wind and to help the growing tree's root system get established to support its rapid growth. A newly planted tree should be able to sway gently as root growth is established, the ties and supports should not be "TIGHT" around the trunk or to the support.
Do you know when to remove wraps ans supports? As a tree strengthens over time, it is important that the ties are removed to avoid permanent damage to the tree. Most trees do not need supports after 6 months and practically never after two years. If not removed in time, a tree can grow over the wraps and ties which can strangle the tree, causing severe injury or even loss of the tree.
Be sure to take care of your trees by properly trimming them and removing supports when no longer needed.
