Work Session Meeting agenda summary

City Council discussed the composition of the boards of directors for tax increment reinvestment zone number one (TIRZ No. 1) and tax increment reinvestment zone number two (TIRZ No. 2). The McKinney Independent School District and Collin College waived their appointment to the boards. Since the ordinance created a board with 11 members, the City Council agreed to vote at the next meeting to reduce the number of seats on the boards to nine, the current number sitting on both.

The report includes information including demographics and McKinney characteristics, department achievements, building inspections, parks development and regional transportation projects summary.

Public Hearing

A public hearing was held on an application submitted by G.H. Sports Group to the McKinney Community Development Corporation (MCDC) requesting $300,000 for the construction of an artificial turf sports complex at Craig Ranch. According to its bylaws, MCDC funding grants for amounts exceeding $100,000 must be approved by the City Council. The G.H. Sports Group previously submitted an application for funding to MCDC last year for a larger-scale complex in a different location. It was approved but subsequently rescinded and replaced with this current application. City Council denied the request for funding in Item 11-144.

At the applicant’s request, item 10-118Z was tabled for a future meeting.

Item 11-010Z, a rezoning request located near U.S. 380 and Bridgefarmer Rd., was approved as conditioned in the staff report.
