City of Celina Welcomes New Opportunities For Growth With New Director of Economic Development, Alexis Jackson

We Are Celina!

CELINA Magazine is the only publication that distributes 10,000+ copies to households and businesses in Celina and surrounding areas. CELINA Magazine caters to its educated, family oriented, high net worth readers who have a passion for living well. Each issue focuses on Health, Education, Lifestyle, Community Events and businesses, making it the premiere publication in the Celina area.

With a city population that has nearly doubled in the last eight years, Celina, Texas is on pace to be one of the fastest growing cities in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. In preparation for this economic, geographic and demographic boomtime, the city announced today its appointment of the new Director of Economic Development at City of Celina, Alexis Jackson. With over 18 years of experience in comprehensive planning, economic development and public involvement, Jackson brings a new and fresh perspective to leading the city’s charge.

“It’s hard to contain my passion and excitement about Celina’s future,” says Alexis Jackson, Director of Economic Development at City of Celina. “This city will continue to be a community of choice where residents actually choose to live, work and play here because of the deliberate and purposeful decisions about how we grow.”

Under Jackson’s lead, the Celina Economic Development Corporation just launched its “Celina By Choice” campaign which includes an all-new website for both residents and prospects to see the community’s vision at work. Developed by a team of visionaries at the City of Celina, the EDC and City Council, the campaign serves as a reminder to existing Celina residents and as a promise to both business and prospects looking to relocate. Working with the community to maintain the history and hometown roots of a small town, while increasing the economic benefits of smart growth will lay the foundation for Celina’s future success.

“We have plans for a very unique approach to proactively respond to the growth that is upon us and one that takes community involvement into great consideration,” says Jackson. “This responsible approach to growth has inspired us to team only with other visionaries who share the same values for growth and redevelopment and because of these partnerships, we will have some exciting announcements to come. “

Working in various local government roles, Jackson first began working for the City of Celina in 2017 as Director of Development Services. Highlighting the City’s Downtown Master Plan, Jackson was influential in fostering community involvement through resident surveys and even an interactive citizen engagement event for continued responsibility to maintaining Celina’s unique identity.

The new Celina By Choice website will be the best place to read all of the latest information on the exciting plans for what is up ahead for the city. To find out even more information on the plans for Celina, visit:

The City of Celina is situated in high-growth Collin County and nestled between major arteries of Preston Road to the east and the future Dallas North Tollway to the west. Located 45 miles north of Dallas, Celina sits on 78 square miles with an estimated population of 11,000. Celina is positioned geographically, demographically and economically to quickly become a big player in the North Texas metropolitan community.
