Official news about the City of Cedar Park from the City of Cedar Park.  
Governor’s Order GA-34, effective Wednesday, March 10, 2021, allows businesses to return to 100% capacity and still require staff and customers to wear face coverings if businesses so choose. This Governor’s Order supersedes any local orders.  

It is the nature of City government business that we have frequent interactions with the public, so our staff will continue to be required to wear face coverings in City facilities. The public is also required to wear face coverings while inside City-owned buildings.

Expect bulk trash pickup delays.

Thanks to the ice storm and early oak leaf-dropping, there’s a tremendous amount of bulk trash. Our trash providers have been making four trips to the landfill each day instead of the normal two and working overtime to keep our streets clean. Some of our neighborhoods have experienced delays in bulk trash pickup this week.

If crews don’t get to you by end of day, they’ll be there the next day. All bulk trash should be picked up by Saturday.
We’re movin’ right along with our Residential Tree Limb Collection!

The Green Section for the City’s Tree Limb Collection is nearing completion. It’s almost time for the Yellow Section’s pickup to begin. If you’re in the Yellow Section, please have your tree limb debris curbside by Monday, March 15. Expect a few weeks to complete. Click here for more information.
We will be making an announcement very soon about the Spring Yard Trimmings Recycling. Find out more in the next Pulse, or by following the City on Facebook or Twitter.

The Bell Boulevard Road Realignment

Squee! This is so exciting! The plan is now to move traffic from the existing road to the new road in May or June! Suffice it to say the Bell Boulevard Road Realignment is moving along nicely. You’ll recall that the road realignment is the critical path for the Bell Boulevard Redevelopment Project to begin construction. Aerial photos and video speak a thousand words. Utilities have been relocated underground and you can really see the new road taking shape. Once it’s built, we’ll shift traffic over to the new portion so we can start demoing the old road to make room for the Bell District.
Bell Revelopment Project Update
Design and coordination for Bell District projects are well underway! The City is the Project Lead for both the new Cedar Park Public Library and Bell Park. The City’s development partner, RedLeaf, is leading the Phase 1 Roads and Utilities, Retail buildings, Residences and Social Hub.

The Library will be a multi-story building that will anchor the development adjacent to the 15-acre Bell Park along Cluck Creek. 

Design teams for both projects are now starting to develop conceptual designs. 

Just last night, City Council authorized the Library’s construction contractor. Stay tuned!
The March 11, 2021 City Council Meeting was conducted in a hybrid meeting format, with some City Council Members and some City staff attending in-person.
