The McKinney Town Center (MTC) zoning district is intended to implement the Town Center Master Plan, which City Council adopted in March 2008. The district facilitates pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use, urban-infill redevelopment that provides for a number of land use opportunities including, but not limited to shopping, employment, housing and business and personal services.
This is achieved by the following:
Promoting an efficient, compact and walkable development pattern,
Encouraging pedestrian activity
Reducing the reliance on private automobiles
Positioning the Historic Town Center as a viable transit-oriented development
Promoting a more functional and attractive community through the use of recognized and time-tested principles of urban design
Allowing developers flexibility in land use and site design.
