On Wednesday, April 2, the City of McKinney and North Central Texas Council of Governments will host a public open house to present and discuss the progress of the State Highway 5 Corridor Context Sensitive Transportation Study. The study focuses on approximately six miles of S.H. 5 through McKinney from the southern city limits to the northern city limits.
When: Wednesday, April 2 from 6–8 p.m. (presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.)
Where: McKinney City Hall, 222 N. Tennessee St.
The purpose of the open house will be to present refined drafts associated with the creation of a corridor master plan that will help transform and revitalize S.H. 5. Attendees will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and feedback for the drafted plans for S.H. 5 through McKinney.
This is the second major public outreach event for the S.H. 5 Corridor study, which kicked off in the spring of 2013 with a series of public workshops that culminated in a presentation and formal recommendation to the City Council in July 2013. Since that time, staff and the project team have focused efforts on finalizing the conceptual plans, identifying potential opportunities for economic development and coordinating with state and federal agencies.
