Apply by February 1 to serve on the newly created Downtown Design Review Board. This seven-member citizen board will hear, review, recommend and determine matters related to the Downtown District.

The board is open to Allen residents and those who own or operate a business located within the downtown district. Experience in real estate development, architecture, landscape architecture, planning, urban design or a similar professional field is beneficial but not required.

Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Applications will be reviewed by the Council Nominating Committee with board terms expected to begin in March 2023.

The creation of this new board is a direct outcome of the citizen-led Downtown Steering Committee, which gathered community input through workshops, events, surveys and meetings. In July 2022, the committee provided its final report to City Council. The report included a vision, goals and an implementation plan to revitalize Allen’s downtown.
