Residents to offer feedback for what they want for the future of the properties during April 26 event
McKINNEY, Texas (April 12, 2023) – Residents and other interested parties are invited to share feedback on the future redevelopment of city-owned properties at a town hall meeting from 6—7 p.m. on April 26 at City Hall, 222 N. Tennessee St.
The City of McKinney has started constructing the new McKinney City Hall at the northwest corner of Throckmorton and Virginia streets in downtown McKinney. McKinney City Hall is scheduled to open in early 2025, and staff will vacate many city-owned facilities, including the Development Services building and the current City Hall.
“These properties and facilities will become prime opportunities for redevelopment, and we want to make sure our residents and stakeholders have a chance to weigh in on what types of developments they want to see downtown, whether it be a new restaurant or retail space, a boutique hotel, or workspaces,” said City Manager Paul Grimes. “Because these properties could alter the direction of downtown, it’s important to the city’s leadership to hear from the public before seeking development partners.”
The city intends to issue a request for qualifications (RFQ) later this year to identify a partner or partners the city can work with to redevelop city-owned properties affected by the construction of McKinney City Hall.
The town hall meeting will begin with a brief staff presentation, followed by public feedback through facilitated discussions and visual preference surveys. The public’s feedback will be shared with City Council and will help inform the RFQ.
