6 Allen Chamber of Commerce

Life Is Good! Welcome to Allen, a North Texas town large enough to enjoy all of the conveniences and amenities of the big city yet small enough to have a sense of community and the familiarity and friendliness of home. Along with an ideal location just 26 miles north of Dallas on U.S. 75 (Central Expressway), Allen’s appealing demographics have spurred record-breaking growth. According to the North Central Texas Council of Governments’ 2003–2004 survey, Allen continues to rank as one of the Top Ten Growth Cities with one of the highest ­percentage growth rates in the North Central Texas Region. The population of just over 70,000 is expanding with an estimated 4.5 percent growth rate and is anticipated to reach 89,000 by the year 2010 with a buildout population of 97,938. The 2005 estimate of the average household income in Allen is $107,969. The median Allen household income is estimated at $93,140. The quality of the Allen community attracts residents with a high level of spending power and disposable income. This makes Allen a prime location for restaurants, shopping centers, and other retail venues. In addition, Allen’s bustling economy is driven by its many banking facilities, medical centers and private practices, and technology plants. Allen Premium Outlets is a favorite venue for residents as well as tourists or travelers and features dozens of upscale specialty stores with designer labels at discount prices.

A snapshot of the many stores includes Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers, Kenneth Cole, Nike, Perry Ellis, Liz Claiborne, Tommy Kids, Crate & Barrel, Sunglass Hut, and Movado. Allen has convenient access to downtown Dallas and the surrounding cities, yet it is not hampered by the congestion of larger innercity populations. Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor water park, the JFK Memorial Museum at Dealy Plaza, the Loos Aquatic Center, and the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science are within 45 minutes of Allen. Allen is also close to big-name sports, such as the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, and Texas Rangers. Even closer to home are the Frisco Roughriders, FC Dallas, and Texas Tornado Hockey. Most importantly, Allen is a great place to raise a family. With one of the lowest crime rates in the country, a 3.3 percent unemployment rate, and a nationally recognized public school system, Allen is a community where you will feel comfortable and secure. Throughout the year the City of Allen offers many public events and activities, including the Summer Sounds Concert Series. Furthermore, there is a vast portion of Allen that has been allotted for parks and recreation: The Edge outdoor skate park; baseball, soccer and softball fields; and the Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium. And Allen now features a very special facility for our senior population: The Allen Senior Center is a remarkable facility with programming to match. In all, Allen is not just a great place to visit, but a great place to reside.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Allen Chamber of Commerce 2007 Business Referral, Relocation and Visitor’s Guide. In addition to information about the City of Allen and the Allen Independent School District, this publication includes an alphabetical and categorical guide to business services and the products provided by our Chamber members. This guide is presented annually to all Chamber members and purchasing agents at the growing number of major corporations and small businesses in our area and is provided to new residents and visitors who stop by the Chamber offices. Browsing through this directory, you will find a surprising array of businesses and service providers. When in need of an item or service, we encourage you to review this directory first in hopes you will support those businesses, particularly small businesses, which are owned or operated by those who live and work in our community. This publication would not be possible without their financial assistance and advertising dollars, and we encourage you to reward that sponsorship by using their business services. I’d like to express our deepest appreciation to the individuals and businesses that support our Chamber of Commerce. Their ongoing partnership enables us to serve Allen by contributing to the outstanding business growth of our community. We take great pride in promoting Allen and encourage you to join our team by becoming an active member of our Chamber of Commerce.

chamber of commerce

The Allen Chamber of Commerce provides a medium through which people can take effective action for the progress of the community.

An Indispensable Resource The Allen Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit association that strives to be the indispensable resource for Allen and Collin County businesses. The Allen Chamber is a voluntary organization of business owners and citizens who are investing their time and money in a true community development program to improve the economic, civic, and cultural fortitude of the region, community, and greater Allen area. Any business leader or citizen who is interested in helping to develop the community is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The direct benefit is a stronger local economy: more businesses and more jobs with higher salaries and better fringe benefits. The indirect benefits are more public programs, better schools, and less crime. The work of the Chamber is financed by the investments of its members. The dues structure is designed to permit even the smallest business or individual to become

a member. The Chamber is guided by a Board of Directors who are business leaders in the area and who represent a cross-section of our Chamber membership. The Allen Chamber of Commerce is a member-driven service organization as well as an action institution. It provides a medium through which people can take effective action for the progress of the community. The Chamber helps to create job opportunities by stimulating economic growth; seeking improvement of community facilities, such as streets, highways, parks and schools; and bringing new residents and tourists to our community. In doing so, the Chamber provides the opportunity for members to network with other business leaders and attend business education seminars. In all of these functions, the Chamber of Commerce is serving as a partner to every business and professional in the community. Active membership in your Chamber carries with it a sense of accomplishment and

pride of satisfaction from the knowledge that you are doing your share of an important job for the community. Every member has a voice in determining the policies and projects that the Chamber undertakes. Furthermore, every member is needed on active committees to achieve the Chamber’s goals. Although everyone in the community benefits from the work of the Chamber, you can accept these benefits with pride only if you have had a part in bringing them about. A great way to build your business is by helping to build your community. Your personal sacrifice ensures your personal rewards in the community. The Advantages of Chamber Membership

Why join the Chamber? How can the Chamber assist area businesses? These are questions asked by prospective members, our leadership, and the staff itself. While the answers are diverse, depending on your www.allenchamber.com 9

Member Exposure

position and needs, the primary way in which the Chamber supports its members is as an advocate for business growth and economic prosperity, striving to find solutions to member problems. This is accomplished in a number of ways, including work on legislative issues and through the promotion of economic development activities. The Chamber is a member-driven organization and, as such, continuously explores ways in which it may be of greater benefit to its member investors. The following is a brief overview of the programs and services currently offered by the Allen Chamber of Commerce. The solution to your business challenges may lie in one or more of these services. If not, we are receptive to your suggestions for improvements.

Information Services

Through its relationship with the City of Allen, the Allen Independent School District, and the Allen Economic Development Corporation, the Chamber provides members with an array of business-related information. The Chamber is a resource for: • Demographic Information • New Residents Information and Lists • Membership Directory and Referral Guide • Community Profile • Membership Lists and Mailing Labels • City Maps and Telephone Directories • Business and Industrial Site Guides • AISD Information • Local and Statewide Attractions

Business development is the reason many companies join the Chamber. The Allen Chamber offers a variety of networking and business opportunities for members, such as: • Member-only referrals • Internet listing(s) with advertising opportunities • Membership Directory listings (categorical and alphabetical) • Information display in Chamber lobby • Ribbon-cutting and groundbreaking ceremonies • Tuesday Morning Live! Weekly Networking Breakfast • Monthly Business Wrap-Ups — social networking at its finest • Monthly Luncheons or Breakfast Meetings, including the very popular Nothing But Networking luncheons • Chairman’s Coffees for new and prospective members • Educational seminars • Eggs & Issues Legislative Breakfasts • Joint education seminars, legislative briefings, and other activities held in conjunction with neighboring Chambers of Commerce, the Collin County Community College District, the Small Business Development Center of Collin County, the Allen Economic Development Corporation, and the Allen ISD • Member Buy Member Program Chamber membership is beneficial when our members become involved in helping us increase member exposure within the community, assist in building relationships with other members, provide referrals, and offer opportunities for our members to enhance their business acumen.

small-town atmosphere and big-city amenities.

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the citizens of Allen, to welcome you to our community. Allen is a unique mix of small-town atmosphere and big-city amenities. You can begin to experience this in our award-winning park system at facilities such as the Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium, Joe Farmer Recreation Center, and the play and spray ground area at Celebration Park. Among the list of new facilities, The Edge @ Allen Station Park features the largest outdoor skate park in Texas, along with a BMX course and two in-line hockey rinks. The Allen Public Library features unique areas for children, teens, and adults, as well as an auditorium for cultural programs. Serving all generations, we recently celebrated the grand opening of the Allen Senior Recreation Center, which includes a fitness room, game room, a variety of classrooms, a multi-purpose room, and a commercial kitchen. As we plan for the future Allen also strives to preserve its history through a historic village that is taking shape in the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Business District. The village started with the Allen Heritage Center (a replica of Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original train depot) and is home to several historically significant buildings dating back to the 1880s. One of the things that makes our community strong is the involvement of our citizens. It was Allen residents who saw the need and created Allen Community Outreach, Allen Philharmonic Symphony, and Allen Foundation for Schools. Together, Allen citizens are volunteering their time, energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and experiences in helping our community achieve excellence. The City has an aggressive economic development program designed to provide additional employment opportunities and an increased tax base for the community. Major thoroughfare planning and construction complement economic development and provide accessibility to our city. Our community offers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;recognizedâ&#x20AC;? rated school district and many churches and civic organizations that combine to make Allen a community of which we are all proud to be a part. All these things and more make Allen a place you will enjoy calling home. Sincerely, /),!.$,5"% /IL#HANGEs-AINTENANCEs3TATE)NSPECTION#ENTERS

Small Business In the United States, small businesses create two-thirds to three-quarters of net new jobs and represent more than 99 percent of all employers.

Profiles of Success Small businesses play a vital role in our local, statewide, and national economies. In the United States, small businesses create two-thirds to three-quarters of net new jobs and represent more than 99 percent of all employers. They also employ 51 percent of private-sector workers, 51 percent of workers on public assistance, and 38 percent of workers in high-tech jobs. Small businesses account for nearly all of the self-employed, which comprise 7 percent of the nation’s workforce. Some 19.6 million Americans work for companies employing fewer than 20 workers, 18.4 million work for firms employing between 20 and 99 workers, and 14.6 million work for firms with 100 to 499 workers. In contrast, 47.7 million Americans work for firms with 500 or more employees. According to a 2003 study conducted by the 12 Allen Chamber of Commerce

United States Small Business Association, 29.5 percent of Texas’ payrolls were generated from companies with 20 employees or less. These companies are so vital to our economy that the president declared the week of April 10, 2006, as National Small Business Week in order to recognize the importance of sole proprietors and small employers to the nation’s economy. A particular strength of small businesses is their ability to quickly evolve and adjust to the increasingly competitive job market. And while many jobs are being redistributed overseas, small businesses keep our local economies thriving. They have produced threefourths of the economy’s new jobs in the last decade and represent an entry point into the economy for newer groups, such as women, who participate heavily in small business. In the 1990s, the number of female-owned businesses climbed by 89 percent to an

estimated 8.1 million, and women-owned sole proprietorships are expected to reach 41 percent of all such ventures by the year 2009. But, arguably, one of the most important aspects of the small business is that it lends a community its personality and uniqueness. The small cafés and restaurants, boutiques, medical and dental offices, and various specialty stores symbolize a town’s individuality. The small business owners often know their customers personally and are especially suited to meet local needs. Moreover, small business owners often take an active interest in not only local business, but other local nonprofit organizations as well. Therefore, in Allen, we appreciate and support all businesses, from the large corporations to the sole proprietors, and we want to be sure to recognize the sometimes-overlooked small businesses that keep our economy bustling.

AEDC Impacts at a Glance

Since the AEDC’s inception, over 45 projects have been completed in Allen, bringing over 8,000 primary jobs for a skilled workforce.

T

he City of Allen has made a strong commitment to providing the highest-quality development in commercial, residential, and recreational sectors. In keeping with that commitment, the Allen Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) uses its resources to encourage diversity in our corporate and business base to provide sustainable economic growth for generations to come. In 1992, the citizens of Allen passed a citywide half-cent sales tax in support of an economic development corporation. The AEDC is charged with facilitating expansion and relocation of existing business that will in turn bring additional tax revenues, local spending, and job opportunities to the community. Since the AEDC’s inception, over 45 projects have been completed in Allen, bringing over 8,000 primary jobs for a skilled workforce and generating over $685 million on the tax rolls for 2005. As a result, the

16 Allen Chamber of Commerce

City of Allen has been able to provide more than $80 million in public facilities and amenities that have made Allen one of the most desirable places to live and work in Collin County. A five-member board, appointed by the City Council, governs the AEDC. The individuals represent a diverse spectrum of interests and expertise that is invaluable in making sound decisions with regard to the quality of Allen’s economic development. A three-person professional staff oversees the day-to-day operations of the corporation. In its first year, the AEDC negotiated with Experian (formerly TRW) to occupy offices on U.S. 75. The largest private employer in Allen (with almost 700 employees), Experian is a vital part of the community and a catalyst for the recruitment of other technology industries. The AEDC purchased and transformed 92 acres along U.S. 75 into Millennium Technology Park, a first-class park that is

home to a number of nationally known companies. Allen’s positive energy further translated into the success of Enterprise Business Park, Millennium Corporate Center, and Allen Station Business Park. Allen’s business parks are designed with amenities required by high-tech, medical-related, and defenserelated users, allowing for the recruitment of business and industry pioneering in a new generation of technologies. Allen has been transformed from a commu­ nity where many residents commuted long distances for work, entertainment, and services to a premier location for business and industry. This has generated a demand for smaller office and tech space, retail and restaurants, and professional and medical services to be available locally. The AEDC has facilitated many of those projects, including The Corporate Center at Twin Creeks, BSM Financial Center, Presbyterian Hospital of Allen, Allen Premium Outlets, and the Hilton Hotel.


A multitude of new construction projects are under way in Allen.

Creating the foundation for sustainable economic growth is not a haphazard process. In Allen, it began with a vision cast by community leaders that the city would develop a diverse, resilient economy with business and industry that would bring quality jobs. As the vision has become reality, there are new opportunities that further broaden Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business landscape.

Exciting new mixed-use projects are underway in Allen that will provide a broader choice of shopping, dining, and entertainment options in town-center settings that establish a unique character for the city. The AEDC works with developers of these projects to build necessary infrastructure and assists with recruitment of key anchor tenants. In 2005, construction began on Star Creek, located between Stacy Road and SH 121, bounded by Watters Road on the west and Chelsea Boulevard on the east. The commercial portion of Star Creek, located along SH 121, features Life Time Fitness and a 16-screen Cinemark theater. The project is designed to attract restaurants and family-oriented recreation and entertainment venues. Star Creek also includes 879 singlefamily homes. Montgomery Farm is a unique project that will include upscale restaurants and shops in a lifestyle environment. The Garden District, located on the southwest corner of Bethany Drive and U.S. 75, will be anchored by Market Street grocery store, opening in winter 2007. Approximately 1,200 homes are planned for the 500-acre conservationoriented development. In 2006, General Growth Properties, the second-largest developer of shopping centers in the United States, closed on 238 acres on the southwest corner of SH 121 and U.S. 75 in Allen. Allentowne will be a master-planned lifestyle center with high-density (high-rise lofts and ground-level) retail, entertainment, and office components. General Growth Properties will break ground on the retail destination in 2007.

One of the AEDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most impressive accomplishments is the construction of the BSM Financial Center.

The AEDC Has an Impressive List of Recent Accomplishments The AEDC worked with a developer to build an office project on the southeast corner of U.S. 75 and Ridgemont Drive, the southern gateway to the city. The project, BSM Financial Center, consists of two two-story office buildings. The AEDC recruited BSM Financial to the development, occupying 37,000 square feet of the first building, which is 50,000 square feet. A second, 60,000-square-foot building is under construction. AEDC recruitment efforts led to new businesses locating in Allen. Atlas Copco, an international manufacturer of drilling

equipment, moved their distribution operation to 81,000 square feet in Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Enterprise Business Park. ACH Direct, a fast-growing electronic funds processor, relocated their corporate headquarters from California to 20,000 square feet in Allen Tech Center. The AEDC facilitated a number of business expansions in Allen, including WiQuest, a fabless semiconductor company; AirGATE Technologies, specializing in RFID technology; and Mustang Technology, a defenserelated company. In its ongoing effort to meet the demand for space and build Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-residential tax

base, the AEDC has exciting projects under way for the upcoming year. The AEDC has reached an agreement with a developer to build Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first â&#x20AC;&#x153;Class Aâ&#x20AC;? office development. Located in Millennium Corporate Center, on the northwest corner of U.S. 75 and Bethany Drive, the project includes five four-to-eight-story buildings, ranging from 150,000 to 200,000 square feet each. The first building, a five-story, 150,000square-foot building, started construction in summer 2006. Anticipating an increased demand, new projects breaking ground this year in Allen Station Business Park will add over 450,000


square feet of office/flex space for users needing at least 50,000 square feet. The AEDC will complete roads in the park and assist with tenant recruitment. Space for smaller office and office/flex users has been in high demand in Allen. A developer has started construction on a single-story, 65,000-square-foot building in Allen Business Centre (Phase II) designed for smaller users. In Twin Creeks Business Park, the AEDC has facilitated several projects. The first is a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Hospital that will begin construction in summer 2006. The facility provides outpatient care as well as long-term care lasting from two weeks to a month. The second development, also under construction in summer 2006, is a three-building park with a total of 180,000 square feet of space for smaller office/warehouse users. The AEDC has played a role in the development of Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Central Business District (CBD). This year, the construction of a second office building in McDermott Business Park is underway. This project, located on the southwest corner of McDermott and Ash, is designed for small office users and will ultimately contain five buildings. The first mixed-use project for the CBD is planned on the southwest corner of McDermott and Cedar. The AEDC worked with the developer to design McDermott Square, which will have three two-story buildings, with a variety of facades that create the appearance of different storefronts. The 102,000-square-foot project will accommodate office, retail, and restaurants. New projects in Allen Station Business Park will add over 450,000 square feet of office/flex space.

Education

Allen Independent School District enrollment has more than doubled since 1989.

Public Schools The Allen Independent School District serves the city of Allen as well as students from neighboring Fairview and Lucas who attend grades seven through 12. Student enrollment has more than doubled since 1989, bringing the current number of students to approximately 15,700 in grades Kâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;12. These students attend one of 13 elementary schools, three middle schools, one freshman center, and one high school. Allen ISD enrollment is projected to increase steadily at a rate of approximately 9 percent per year over the next 10 years. Regardless of enrollment increases, Allen ISD is committed to maintaining acceptable student-to-staff ratios and class sizes through the hiring of additional staff or the distribution of students to sister campuses if necessary. In September 2003, Allen ISD voters approved a $71.2 million bond proposal to fund construction of two new ­elementary schools, additional land for school sites, and technology improvements. Voters also 24 Allen Chamber of Commerce

approved a $55.5 million bond proposal in September 2002 to fund construction of two new elementary schools (Marion and Boon), a middle school (Ereckson), renovations, and land purchases for future schools. Ereckson Middle School opened in August 2004 and Boon Elementary opened in August 2005. At least two more elementary schools are planned over the next five years. Elementary students enrolling in Allen ISD for the first time may be assigned to a school outside their attendance area if no space exists in their grade level. Parents may then choose to remain at that school or transfer back if openings at their original school become available. Following are the enrollments for the 2006 school year: Anderson Elementary 951 Bolin Elementary 718 Boon Elementary 780 Boyd Elementary 574 Chandler Elementary 520 Green Elementary 784 Kerr Elementary 763

Allen ISD has received exceptional ratings on its public school system as designated under the new accountability standards set by the Texas Education Agency. Three Allen ISD campuses were rated as Exemplary, 10 earned a Recognized rating, and three were rated as Academically Acceptable. The ratings were determined by the Spring 2005 TAKS results. A statewide drop in scores and ratings had been anticipated with the more rigorous tests, new subjects being tested, and higher


standards being applied. Despite these higher standards, the Allen ISD continues to receive high marks from its testing. The campus and school district ratings are based on performance by all students and in all subpopulations identified by the state. These groups include African American, Hispanic, White, and Economically Disadvantaged. Therefore, a school can score at an Exemplary level as a whole, but if one of the subpopulation groups scores below that level, the rating drops down. The ratings are based upon four components: TAKS scores, SDAA test scores, Completion Rate, and Dropout Rate. Following are the 2005 results: 2005 Accountability Ratings Summary Campus Rating Number of Schools Exemplary 3 Recognized 10 Academically Acceptable 3 Academically Unacceptable 0 Not Rated: Alternative Education 0 Not Rated: New Campus 2 TOTAL 18 Allen High School is a 2002 Texas Recognized School and a National Blue Ribbon School.

Southwest Academy is an independent, coeducational, nonprofit school established in 1994. Southwest offers a full-day program for children 3 years old through ninth grade. Its philosophy is that learning lasts longer when it involves the whole brain, is most effective when it accommodates individual learning styles, and is most efficient when it occurs in a pleasant, supportive environment. Southwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to teach children that they are lovable and capable and to be lifelong learners. Southwest Academy Learning Center is directed by Beverly Dooley, Ph.D. She is assisted by a team of specially trained instructors under the guidance of a Board of Directors that is comprised of business and educational community leaders. Members of an Advisory Board are available to lend expertise in their individual fields. The center encompasses the Academy, an Evaluation Center, Summer School for Enrichment, and Southwest Multisensory Training Center for teacher training. Southwest Academy is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, or educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or corresponding section of any federal tax code. The academic program: â&#x20AC;˘ provides a positive, caring, nonpressured environment that empowers each child to develop his full potential, individual character, and self esteem. â&#x20AC;˘ uses multi-sensory teaching techniques to reach children with average or above-average I.Q. through the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning channels to maximize the learning experience â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;See it, Say it, Do it.â&#x20AC;? Research indicates multi-sensory teaching can increase both learning and retention by 25 to 100 percent. â&#x20AC;˘ teaches students practical skills for living, such as concentration, self discipline, and emotional intelligence, while emphasizing â&#x20AC;&#x153;how to learnâ&#x20AC;? so that new skills can be applied to any situation. â&#x20AC;˘ is individualized in a cooperative rather than a competitive atmosphere.

Whether you are interested in a certificate or an associate degree, transferring to a university, or training to advance your career, Collin County Community College has something for you. Collin County Community College is a premier academic institution with six locations serving more than 40,000 credit and continuing-education students.

CCCC’s award-winning professors encourage creativity and innovation. The faculty includes a U.S. Professor of the Year; four Minnie Stevens Piper Professors, one of Texas’ highest honors; and a Fulbright scholar. Also among the faculty is an honoree of the Teaching Excellence Award, presented by the Texas Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges. In addition, a Collin professor was chosen to serve as a visiting professor at the University of Cambridge in England. The college has expanded its dual admissions program, which allows students simultaneous admission to both the college and any of the following universities: Texas A&M University-Commerce, the University of North Texas, the University of Texas at Dallas, Southern Methodist University, and Texas Woman’s University. Similarly, in response to the critical need for classroom teachers, CCCC became the first community college in the nation to offer teacher certification.

Moreover, students can take advantage of numerous diverse and enriching educational opportunities by attending or participating in theater, music, and dance performances; art exhibits; and athletic events, as well as being active in student organizations. On par with universities across the nation, CCCC’s guest lecture series brings renowned scholars to campuses, including Nobel Laureate Dr. Norman Borlaug, goodwill ambassador Harriet Mayor Fulbright, and former CIA Director Robert Gates. In addition, the late Peter Jennings of ABC’s World News Tonight moderated a town hall meeting between CCCC students and a panel of local journalists. Collin County Community College District and the Allen Independent School District opened their doors to a unique partnership — CCCCD@ALLEN — in the fall of 1999. This location houses the award-winning Culinary Arts program and is the launch site of the innovative Teacher Certification program. Additional college locations include Central Park Campus in McKinney, Spring Creek Campus and Courtyard Center for Economic and Professional Development in Plano, the Preston Ridge Campus in Frisco, and the Higher Education Center at Rockwall. Whether looking for a new career, a specialized degree, or a new job skill, Collin County Community College is a smart move. »For more information, visit www.ccccd.edu.

The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) The University of Texas at Dallas is a young, dynamic research institution on the cutting edge of science, technology, medicine, business, and the arts. Started as a

research institute and later developed to offer graduate and undergraduate programs, UTD provides a unique learning environment. It is host to seven schools, offers an array of interdisciplinary degree programs, and features a student population as diverse as its areas of study. Since its inception in 1961 as the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest, an outgrowth of technology giant Texas Instruments, UTD fosters a strong tradition of academic excellence. UTD became part of the University of Texas system in 1969, offered only graduate degrees until 1975, and admitted its first freshman class in 1990. Today, it ranks at or near the top in the number of computer science degrees awarded each year in the United States. With a current enrollment of more than 14,000 students, and a world-class faculty that includes two Nobel laureates, UTD aims to provide Texas and the nation with the benefits of educational and research programs of the highest quality. By merging theory with practice in classrooms and at the university’s 29 research centers, UTD challenges curious minds to find the answers to their questions. Apartment-style living on campus is available to all students, including freshmen. In short, UTD provides a quality education and a wealth of opportunities to anyone striving to reach his or her potential. The UTD campus continues to grow, breaking ground in 2004 on an $85 million, state-of-the-art Natural Science and Engineering Research Building, fueling UTD’s drive to become a “tier-one” academic research institution.

Allen Arts Alliance

Bringing Culture Home Support for the arts is crucial to the health and vitality of any city. Art enhances the quality of life for every citizen and helps build a stronger sense of community identity. Founded by the City in 1998, the Allen Arts Alliance has established itself as the city’s leading arts organization, commissioned to assist all arts-related endeavors.

Arts of Collin County In 2002, city officials and community leaders in Collin County, Texas, founded the Arts of Collin County in response to the demand from citizens for a local venue in which to experience and enjoy quality entertainment and the arts. Currently, there are few adequate arts facilities in Collin County, one of the nation’s fastest-growing counties, with a projected 2025 population of 1 million. To ensure all citizens can share and enjoy in the full diversity and vitality of the arts, the Arts of Collin County will, in its first phase, build a 2,100-seat, multi-purpose performing

arts hall. This hall will serve as an anchor for the planned arts district. Included in the facility are multi-purpose rehearsal, performance, and support spaces that will accommodate county arts-based organizations and attract quality touring programs. Through an unprecedented cooperative effort between the three cities of Allen, Frisco, and Plano, public bond monies have been designated to build this arts facility. Private funding secured through a fundraising campaign will supplement the funds received from the public sector and provide the remaining capital. When completed, the Collin County arts park and performing arts hall will not only provide a venue for quality arts and entertainment, but it will also improve the quality of life and education of county citizens. The generosity of several leaders in Collin County has propelled the fundraising efforts
