McKinney City Council puts auto-related specific-use permit in place


At the McKinney City Council meeting Nov. 6 council approved three items of note, one of which regards property owners’ ability to build auto-related businesses in the city of McKinney.

Specific-use permit required for auto-related uses

During the meeting council put a specific-use permit, or SUP, in place for any auto-related uses going forward while grandfathering in seven auto-related site plans that were submitted prior to the council’s decision.

According to the McKinney Planning Department, 18 percent of businesses along US 75 consist of auto-related business, and three of the seven previously submitted site plans were submitted after council’s initial discussion of a SUP in June.

While the SUP process has been approved and is effective Nov. 6, council will continue to review site plan standards.

Other items

In addition council also approved a general development plan for the Ballfields at Craig Ranch, located on the corner of Alma Road and Henneman Way, as well as authorized payment of $500 to each of three artists who will create potential design concepts for a sculpture at Dr. Glenn Mitchell Memorial Park, 300 W. Louisiana St., McKinney.
