The City recognizes there is no formal structure or funding mechanism for non-HOA neighborhoods to maintain their shared spaces. In the summer of 2021, the City of Allen launched pilot projects for Fountain Park and Cottonwood Bend neighborhoods to enhance entryway features. The City assisted with some of the larger costs of these projects while neighborhood residents assisted with volunteer labor and planning a neighborhood block party to celebrate the completion of the project.
As of spring 2023, the Department has expanded the program to three new neighborhoods and plans to continue expanding as funding allows. Click on the neighborhood links below for more information.
If you have questions or comments about these programs, please call the Community Enhancement Department at 214.509.4180.
