Development Regulations Update

In October, 2018 the City of McKinney adopted a new comprehensive plan for development called ONE McKinney 2040. The city is currently in the process of updating its development regulations in order to align the process to the plan and ensure that McKinney remains a top choice for people to live, work, and play, and visit through 2040.
