BY KELSEY THOMPSON

committee, created Nov. 26, provided a list of recommended transportation and parks projects to council for consideration Feb. 11, with a sticker price of approximately $188million. It was a price tag council members and residents in attendance expressed surprise over. “The sticker shock of $188 million is not something we can just say, ‘Eh, sure,’” Mayor Pro Tem Omar Peña said at council’s Feb. 11 meeting, prior to council’s ocial bond call. Following a 2 1/2-hour discussion, council voted in favor of reducing the scope of the bond package to $96.7 million, allocated solely to road infrastructure.

Pugerville’s population has grown 266%, skyrocketing from 16,335 residents in 2000 to 59,757 accounted for in the 2018 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimate.With its current population projected by city sta at more than 70,000 and no shortage of growth in sight, the city of Pugerville is taking the next step to alleviate its growing pains by asking voters to approve a $96.7 million investment in transportation infrastructure.

BY TAYLOR JACKSON BUCHANAN

Templeton Demographics, a company RRISD hired to study current trends within the district, projects a 10-year enrollment growth of 2,254 students for a 2029-30 enrollment of 52,986 students. This growth is creating current and foreacasted capacity issues, which are one of three main reasons for the boundary changes, Presley said. Other reasons include the future opening of Elementary School No. 35 and addressing split feeder patterns. CONTINUED ON 36

FROMTAYLOR: The Texas comptroller has proposed a rule that would cost the city of Round Rock at least $20 million a year from its general fund revenue (see Page 19). The proposal would redistribute sales tax collected on internet purchases. For Round Rock—the headquarters of Dell Technologies— this shift would be “devastating,” city ocials said.

Old Austin-Hutto Road improvements The project will widen Old Austin- Hutto Road to three lanes. Timeline: Construction expected to start in early 2020.

Consulting Engineers Inc. in March 2019 before the addition of Project Charm to the city’s development proposals. Since then, city sta have modied the trac impact analysis and scope of the proposal to accommodate increased trac related to the proposed 3.8 million- square-foot distribution center. City sta said developers behind Project Charm agreed to help with improvements, adding that when accounting for the anticipated trac impact by Project Charm, the upgrades would create a 30%-40% intersection improvement. There are four Pecan intersection projects planned concurrently, Reinhart said: Pecan at SH 130, Pecan at Biltmore Avenue, Pecan at FM 685 and Pecan at Heatherwilde Boulevard. The project is expected to go to bid in spring 2021.

Pugerville City Council approved a $416,000 supplemental agreement with Pacheco Koch Consulting Engineers Inc. at council’s Jan. 28 meeting to help fund intersection improvements at Pecan Street and FM 685. Council voted 6-1 in favor of the motion, with Council Member Mike Heath stating he voted against the motion due to the project’s scope. Planned intersection improvements at Pecan Street and FM 685 include a displaced left-turn lane, which will reroute trac turning left onto a new road that runs parallel to the original one. Other improvements include trac signal timing changes, said Patricia Reinhart of Pugerville’s Public Works department. Council previously awarded a $213,000 services agreement to Koch
