As part of a collection of minor changes to the city of McKinney’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan, a few changes are being proposed to the city’s master thoroughfare plan.

The master thoroughfare plan provides general locations for future streets and roads in McKinney. Thoroughfare alignments might shift as roads are engineered and designed to accommodate planning and developments as well as flood plains.

The updates were presented to McKinney Planning and Zoning commissioners Sept. 22, who approved the changes to the comprehensive plan and sent them with a favorable recommendation for McKinney City Council to consider Oct. 20.

The most significant change to the thoroughfare plan occurs in the New Hope area, where the North Texas Municipal Water District facility is going in, city staff said. This caused staff to make some alignment changes to work around that facility.

Also in the comprehensive plan are updates to the city’s future land-use diagram, which helps guide future development in the city.
