CARL’S TRACK RECORD

For more than 25 years, Carl has demonstrated a unique set of leadership skills.

Vibrant Economy

Allen has grown to a live/work/play city through projects such as the Central Business Park, Watters Creeks Shopping Center, Village at Allen, Credit Union of Texas Event Center, The Farm and multiple corporate relocations—all part of Carl’s ten years of work on the Allen Economic Development Corporation.

Excellent Schools

Allen ISD offers unparalleled opportunities for our children. Through Carl’s service as a district trustee, we saw new freshman center classrooms, as well as expanded career and technology education opportunities at the high school and new and renovated educational facilities such as a one-of-a-kind Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Center for all grades.

Safe Neighborhoods

Making sure our first responders have the technology, equipment and personnel they need to keep us safe, Carl’s work on the Allen Community Development Corporation Board and Allen City Council helped ensure funding to meet the needs of our police and fire departments as our community continues to grow.

Beautiful Parks and Extensive Trails

Celebration Park, Allen Station Park, Don Rodenbaugh Aquatics Center, Spirit Park, Windridge Park, Rolling Hills Park and the major expansion of our trail system are just a few results of Carl’s tenure on the Allen Parks and Recreation Board and Allen City Council.

Signature Achievements on the Allen City Council

 

  • Continued growth of our city and services in a very thoughtful and planned manner, while continuing to lower the tax rate each year, while also maintaining our AAA bond rating as a city.
  • A focus on economic development resulting in a number of businesses relocating, expanding or opening facilities in Allen including Sol-Ark, Strike Photonics and Cyrus One, as well as mixed-use developments that bring great opportunities to live, work and play, such as Watters Creek and a number of communities planned along SH121. These opportunities help make Allen a destination and help lower the tax burden on our homeowners.
  • Determining the long-term vision and related land development code for Downtown Allen through the creation of a Downtown Steering Committee and Downtown Design Review Board.
  • Expansion and enhancement of our Parks and Trails system including Stephen Terrell Recreation Center, Spirit Park and many neighborhood parks throughout the city, as well as continuing progress on the Parks and Trails Master plan.
  • Creation of a Community Engagement Advisory Board to celebrate the diversity of our community.
