Allen’s Downtown Steering Committee, led by resident volunteers, was formed in June 2021 to develop a vision to revitalize downtown. The group completed its work in July 2022 with a vision and work plan presented to City Council.
The Downtown Steering Ad Hoc Committee presented their final report to City Council on July 12, 2022. The Downtown Allen Revitalization Plan is the result of nearly a year of community input through workshops, events, surveys and meetings. It provides a vision, goals and an implementation plan to revitalize Allen’s downtown and turn it into the vibrant heart of the city.
Though the plan provides a framework for council reference, no specific developments or changes to Downtown Allen land use were considered by Council during the meeting.
