PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (March 1, 2019) — The Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) recognized the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) with a certificate of achievement for Economic Excellence at the TEDC Legislative Conference on Feb. 21. This is the fifth consecutive year for the PCDC to receive the certificate and is one of only 51 Texas communities recognized out of a possible 887 eligible organizations.
