Economic Incentives

Economics of Historic Preservation

Downtown roses
McKinney’s historic districts enhance the quality of life and the distinctive character of McKinney. The sense of place created by the district’s distinctive character sets it apart from other places, serves to attract visitors and is a point of pride for residents of McKinney. Consequently, McKinney adopted its historic preservation tax exemption ordinance because incentives encourage proper preservation practices such as maintaining original windows, siding and doors. The plus side of this investment is that the rehabilitation of historic properties serves as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization and conservation.
