In partnership with Cottonwood Bend neighbors, the City of Allen launched a pilot project to enhance entryway features and encourage conversations about future neighborhood projects.
The City recognizes there is no formal structure or funding mechanism for maintaining shared spaces in Non-HOA neighborhoods. Through the pilot project, these shared spaces receive enhancements by way of smaller, manageable projects. The City will assist with cost of some of the larger parts of the project, with neighborhood residents assisting with volunteer labor, ongoing maintenance, and planning the best block party the neighborhood has ever seen!
If you have questions, email Senior Planner David Powell or call 214.509.4180.
Below is the pilot project timeline and expected action items associated with the process.
