Allen ISD is hosting an in-person tour of facilities in need of repairs and maintenance. This tour, scheduled on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, is intended to give residents a chance to see facility conditions that district officials say necessitate an upcoming bond election in November.
The election, slated for Nov. 2, consists of two bond propositions which collectively amount to $23.6 million and will primarily fund renovations of athletic facilities.
Stops for the district-curated tour include the Allen ISD Activity Complex, Eagle Stadium’s turf field, Ford Middle School’s field, Lowery Freshman Center’s field and “Weight Barn,” Ereckson Middle School’s track/turf and Allen High School’s tennis court.
Registration can be done online through Friday at bit.ly/3kgDnHR.

A new batch of Census data shows that Allen’s 2020 population is 104,627. The population in the 2010 Census was 84,246.
