Downtown Steering Committee moves forward with consultant selection process

Posted on September 13, 2021 at 2:13 PM by Tralana Pollard

The Downtown Steering Committee selection team is in the process of reviewing proposals received in response to the Request for Proposal (RFP), that was released in August. The RFP requested qualified consulting firms to assist with Phase 2 of the Downtown Revitalization Project. In October, the Committee and City staff will make a recommendation to Mayor and City Council as to which firm is most qualified.

In Phase 2, the selected firm will work with the Committee and City staff to create a plan for a variety of opportunities for community engagement as we all work together to build a vision for our city center – Old Downtown Allen. Several platforms and venues will be available to ensure that everyone can be part of the process. These will include online/virtual and in-person opportunities beginning in early 2022.

With the information gathered, a preliminary vision will be developed and presented to the community for input and adjustments.
