Welcome to the Here in Allen, fall is always a time of change and transition. Kids head off to school for a new year of learning, the family calendar finds a new rhythm, and our beautiful parks and trails become more colorful as leaves take on their autumn hues.

.

There are changes elsewhere in our City, too. Earlier this year we Ken Fulk, Mayor CITY OF ALLEN adopted a new strategic plan to help guide Allen’s progress through the next several years. We also welcomed three new members to the Allen City Council and moved forward with several long-anticipated projects—including the construction of the Stephen G. Terrell Recreation Center and designs for the expansion of Allen Public Library. You can read more about each of these items in Allen in Focus, located at the back of this publication. Some things never change, however – including the community spirit that makes Allen so special. We’re thrilled to welcome back several beloved traditions in 2021, such as diving for pumpkins at Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium (page 18), planting trees on Arbor Day (page 19) and ringing in the holidays at the Holly Jolly Celebration (page 21). We hope you’ll join us throughout this special season as we make new memories, together!

BIGGER SPACE, BIGGER IMPACT

ALLEN PUBLIC LIBRARY EXPANSION Conceptual designs for Allen Public Library’s long-anticipated expansion are expected to be finalized this fall. Over the summer, architects gathered input from a citizen-led steering committee, patrons, staff and other stakeholders to help guide the design process. The project will add up to 45,000 sq. ft. to the current library location. Construction is expected to begin in 2022 with projected completion in 2023. Allen voters approved more than $16 million for library improvements during the 2016 bond election, with a library expansion identified as the primary need to meet anticipated demand of the City’s future population. The 2016 bond program also covered the cost of a previous parking lot expansion which added more than 100 spaces in 2017.

Adolfson & Peterson Construction was selected to perform the work based on qualification criteria and best value to the City. Construction began in July 2021, with the grand opening anticipated in early summer 2023.
