Pflugerville is a city in Travis and Williamson counties in the U.S. state of Texas. The 2010 Census put Pflugerville's population at 46,936. Pflugerville is a suburb of Austin and part of the Austin–Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The first issues of the Pflugerville Press, a weekly newspaper, began publishing on August 7, 1907 and operated through October 29, 1942. In 1910, black workers who worked in the Pflugerville cotton industry were not allowed to move into the town. Farmer La Rue Norton, who owned 1,200 acres of land west of Pflugerville, set aside an acre and sold lots to the workers at $50 each. County records listed the settlement as Pflugerville's Colored Addition in April 1910. The first Geman Day celebration in Pflugerville took place on May 29, 1910. In 1913, H.S. Pfluger built the Sky Dome Theater, which showed motion pictures to the accompaniment of a player piano on Friday and Saturday nights. It closed in 1928. In the early 1920s, Pflugerville was home to an estimated 500 residents. During that period, several area school districts consolidated with Pflugerville High School. Around 580 people lived in the community in 1930.
Throughout the 1990s, the city of Austin experienced a rapid rise in its population. This was also the case in suburban areas surrounding the city. Pflugerville and communities such as Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Georgetown came to or more than doubled in size by the next census in 2000. Since then, Pflugerville has grown by approximately 20,000, with the total number of residents approaching 40,000 as of 2008. The 2010 Census placed Pflugerville's population at 46,936, however with annexations since the 2010 census and with Pflugerville's continued growth, the city estimates approximately 50,000.
The City of Pflugerville remains one of the county's jurisdictions with a high property tax rate. Though with a recent influx of higher sales tax revenue, the City Council has lowered the property tax rate annually since 2003.
The city's past isolation from any major roadways, may have led to fewer businesses choosing to locate in town. (While a mile stretch of Interstate 35 is often referred by local media and residents as "in Pflugerville", the city of Austin actually controls this land, either as part of the city or through its extraterritorial jurisdiction.)
Public education in the city of Pflugerville is provided by the Pflugerville Independent School District (PISD). The district serves Pflugerville, the community of Windemere and part of Wells Branch, a small portion of Austin as well as rural areas in northeastern Travis County. As of the 2008-2009 school year, PISD had a total enrollment of 21,719 students and operated three high schools (Pflugerville, Connally, and Hendrickson), five middle schools, seventeen elementary schools, and two alternative campuses.
The median income for a household in the city was $71,985, and the median income for a family was $73,629.
