Cedar Park

City of Cedar Park

Last week, Cedar Park officials unfurled its new city flag. It marked the end of an eight-month community effort to find –hopefully- a lasting symbol for the Austin suburb.

What’s on your city flag? If your city has one at all, it’s likely an official seal with wording. More likely, you have not given a city flag any thought at all. But there is one man who wants to change that for his town.

Cedar Park Mayor Matt Powell is on a mission to create a lasting legacy for his city, something citizens can look upon for generations: a city flag.

Update: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that a proposed Schlitterbahn water park development would be reduced in size. While the new development would exclude the hotel and retail components included in a previous project, the water park would remain at 16-acres. The post has since been corrected.

A Schlitterbahn Water Park Resort planned for Cedar Park is no longer happening, but city officials hope they can strike a new deal that would retain the water park component.

A new pedestrian path has opened along a stretch of the 183A toll road, connecting Leander and Cedar Park. The five-mile, ten-foot-wide path cost $3.1 million dollars and opens in conjunction with the second phase of 183A construction.

The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is in charge of the project, and spokesman Steve Pustelnyk says the CTRMA hopes people will use the path for recreation and commuting to work.

The City of Cedar Park is hosting a meet-and-greet tonight with the two finalists for Chief of Police.

Austin Police Assistant Chief Sean Mannix and Irving Police Assistant Chief Jeff Spivey are the top two out of 76 initial applicants.

According to the Hill Country News, current chief Henry Fluck gave notice in February that he would be leaving the department at the end of the year. He has served as chief since 1999.
