McKinney Town Center Zoning District

Facilitating Downtown Land Use Opportunities

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 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.
