Within the organization of the City of McKinney, the names of areas within the city can change over time to reflect current use, anticipated use, landmarks or other identifiable amenities.
The area currently identified as the East McKinney Redevelopment and Preservation (EMRP) area is located within an area referred to in the ONE McKinney 2040 Comprehensive Plan as the Mill District.
Previously, under the Town Center Study, this same area was located within an area that was then referred to as the Transit Village.
The two areas do not overlap directly and the former names are no longer used. We reference them here to lessen the confusion of understanding where the East McKinney Redevelopment and Preservation Area is located as you review materials related to the history of this project.
