PCDC presents to City Council last night
In a joint work session with the city of Pflugerville, the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation outlined where it has been and where it is going in the next year.
Pflugerville Community Development Corporation Executive Director Amy Madison said she welcomed input from City Council members on their strategic plan moving forward.
“It’s a living, breathing document,” Madison said at Tuesday night’s meeting. “We welcome changes or updates the council would like to make to the plan.”
Along with restructuring the water park debt for what is now operated as Typhoon Texas—formerly Hawaiian Falls, the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation developed and continued several initiatives to address its main goal—to bring jobs to Pflugerville.
Madison discussed the corporation’s $51.8 million in obligations and outline goals for the next year and beyond. Incentive guidelines for new businesses were discussed, along with a snapshot of expenses for the past five years.
In 2016, Pflugerville Community Development Corporation landed 10 projects, which accounted for 16.28 acres of development or 204,500 square feet as well as 379 jobs with average wages of $51,300. 2016 projects included:
