In 2022, the City's Neighborhood Planning and Activation workgroup was approached by stakeholders in the community to consider developing a new strategy for the neighborhoods moving into the next decade. With the collaboration of neighborhood leadership, residents, and members of the City's Neighborhood Planning and Activation team, Historic Northeast Neighborhood 2035, is a neighborhood plan of action that guides future growth and investment in the area. The goal is to complete and adopt the plan by Fall 2023 as part of the new All in Allen Comprehensive Plan.


Historic NE Neighborhood 

 HISTORIC NORTHEAST 2035 includes the following neighborhoods:

Northside  -  Forest Park  -  North Anthony



You may ask, why is a neighborhood plan important? The neighborhood planning process offers local stakeholders the opportunity to come together and shape the future of your neighborhood. Neighborhood plans do a lot for a community, including (1) engaging residents and businesses in identifying a future vision for the area and providing strategies and recommendations for achieving that vision, (2) providing detailed recommendations for the neighborhood to ensure neighborhoods grow as envisioned by the plan, and (3) provide a level of analysis, detail, and guidance on issues affecting local areas that a citywide plan cannot. 



In short, everyone! This plan involves anyone who lives, works, worships, and participates in the neighborhoods that are located in the Historic Northeast area, and we want to make sure your voice is included. Direct involvement from the neighborhood's stakeholders and residents is central to the process of developing a neighborhood plan. Opportunities to get involved have and will continue throughout the planning process, including both in-person and online events.  

To ensure that the neighborhood planning process goes smoothly, a team of steering committee members, made up of residents and business owners in the Historic Northeast area, meet regularly to provide feedback and guidance in the plan development process.
