Fountain Park Program (PILOT)

After receiving citizen input, the City of Allen launched a pilot project to enhance the entryway feature located at Main St. and Roaring Springs Dr. including updating the monument sign, hardscape, and landscape.

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 assist with volunteer labor, ongoing maintenance, and planning a neighborhood block party to celebrate the completion of the project.

If you have questions about this project, email Senior Planner Barry Cram or call 214.509.4181.
