McKINNEY, Texas (Oct. 8, 2015) – McKinney residents and stakeholders are invited to attend an interactive community design workshop for the 10-year update to the city’s Comprehensive Plan. This charrette allows residents to engage with city staff and design professionals to explore issues, generate ideas and solve problems relating to land use, parks, transportation, economic vitality and other quality of life issues. The charrette will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Collin College Higher Education Center, 3452 Spur 399. Lunch will be provided.
The city’s Comprehensive Plan guides the growth and development of the city during the next 25 years, and the priorities identified in the plan will influence where new homes, businesses and amenities are built in McKinney.
“We have developed the ONE McKinney 2040 Comprehensive Plan Update to be driven by public input, so we want people to attend and share their ideas so this truly is a vision that is designed by the community,” said Jennifer Arnold, Planning Manager for the City of McKinney. “We had a great turnout at our community summits held in September and got great feedback during Oktoberfest. We want to carry that momentum into this event and look forward to engaging more with our citizens.”
Residents and stakeholders are asked to RSVP by Monday, Oct. 19. To RSVP or for more information about the charrette, the 10-Year Comprehensive Plan Update, or for ADA accommodations, visit www.onemckinney2040.com, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 972-547-7403.
