Allen

   
Allen is a small, but growing family community located in North Collin County. It is far enough from Dallas to provide a relaxed, small-town environment, yet close enough to take advantage of activities and services in the “big city.” The area has planned well for growth, utilizing a Master Land Use Plan that includes expanding water storage capacity and major thoroughfares. The city of Allen is known for its pro-business climate and ability to promote growth while making the community a good place to live.
