Development Regulations

Development Regulations Update

The City of McKinney is updating its development regulations, that will include Chapters 142 (Subdivision) and 146 (Zoning), and other chapters of the McKinney Code of Ordinances related to land development, most of which were originally adopted 37 or more years ago. The primary goals of the project are to update the regulations to make them clearer and more enforceable, and to implement the One McKinney 2040 Comprehensive Plan.


Draft Development Regulation Sections

The update process is split into three parts; Administration and Procedures, Zoning Districts and Uses, and Development Standards. The anticipated timeline and available drafts are shown below:
