The Allen's community is invited to participate in shaping the city's future at the Allen 2024: Community Kickoff event on Thursday, March 28, from 5 to 8 p.m. The event will be held at the Allen Senior Recreation Center at 451 St. Mary Drive.

The initiative, dubbed the Allen 2045 Comprehensive Plan Update, signifies the city's proactive approach toward envisioning its evolution over the coming decades. Drawing from diverse perspectives within the community, including residents, business owners and city officials, the plan aims to encapsulate a collective vision for Allen's future.

According to the city of Allen, after learning about the city's direction, input from residents and stakeholders will serve as a cornerstone in formulating the updated plan, ensuring it reflects the aspirations and needs of the entire community. This initiative follows the Allen 2030 Comprehensive Plan, established in 2014, which laid the groundwork for the city's development aspirations.

Key components of the plan include land use, transportation, housing, economic development and infrastructure. It emphasizes community livability and sustainable growth strategies.

Residents are encouraged to participate in upcoming events and online feedback opportunities, ensuring their voices are heard in shaping Allen's future. The city assures that the kickoff event is just the beginning of a comprehensive engagement process, with additional participation avenues to follow.
