On February 13, Allen City Council approved the purchase of land within the Ridgeview Crossing development for the construction of a neighborhood park.
The construction of a park on this land ensures that future Ridgeview Crossing residents have easy access to a nearby park.
The developer, Zena Land Management, will sell the 2.3 acre plot of land to the City of Allen for $525,000. The developer will pay for the design and construction of the park, while the City still approves any plans and changes made to the park.
This kind of working relationship with the developer helps the City be more efficient with this project and get more out of its budget.
The park will be constructed alongside the construction of the subdivision. The park is expected to be completed in the Spring of 2019.
