Chris Schulmeister

For Allen City Council, Place 4

“As a long time resident and community volunteer in Allen, I would be honored to serve on the Allen City Council.  It is critical that we wisely manage our pace of growth and enhance the quality of life that Allen residents cherish. While managing this growth, we need to continue to revitalize some of the maturing areas within our City.”

Vision, Values & Opportunities

VISION: Allen is a City where deep roots are valued and prudent growth is welcomed. The pace and type of growth in this last phase of build-out must be managed wisely while revitalizing maturing areas within the City.

VALUES:   Chris understands that effective decision-making does not occur in a vacuum. He can be trusted to listen to the voices of all points of view and combine that input with his years of experience as a resident, a businessman and a community volunteer to inform his decisions. Rather than approach each issue with a predetermined agenda, Chris listens and learns before he acts.


Comprehensive Development Review –  Ensure there is a thorough review process prior to approval of new developments with appropriate citizen engagement.

Positive Culture –  Work actively to create and support a culture and environment that embraces the diversity and values of our residents.

Enhance Quality of Life – Expand options for all ages with a focus on parks and recreation, and support for partnerships with education, community, and civic organizations.
