McKINNEY, TEXAS (July 17, 2015) – Today, Assistant City Manager Barry Shelton announced the hiring of Michael Quint as Executive Director of Development Services after an extensive search and interview process. Quint has been the Planning Director in McKinney since August 2012, and he has worked with the city’s planning department since 2006.
“Michael was selected from an excellent pool of candidates, and his city and industry experience has served the entire community well. We are excited about what he brings to the executive team,” said Shelton.
He joined the city in 2006 as a Planner, quickly advanced to Planner II and then became Senior Planner for Development Review in 2008. During his time with the city, he has overseen the successful completion of a number of long-range planning efforts including Phase I of the Northwest Sector Study Initiative, which recently received a CLIDE Award from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, the State Highway 5 Corridor Master Plan, and the implementation of Town Center Study’s vision through the adoption of a new form-based zoning code in downtown McKinney.
Quint also has helped to facilitate high-quality development in McKinney through projects in Adriatica, Tucker Hill and Craig Ranch. He has been instrumental in streamlining McKinney’s development process by introducing an all-digital plan submittal and review process in the Planning Department in addition to facilitating a number of regulatory amendments aimed at ensuring the construction of high-quality developments while minimizing overall development timelines.
“I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve the city staff, the City Council and the community as a whole in this new capacity,” said Quint.
Prior to joining the City of McKinney, Michael worked in the Planning and Engineering Departments for Peoria, Arizona (a suburb of Phoenix).
