A request to rezone about 620 acres from agriculture to allow for a single-family residential, multifamily residential and commercial uses for a residential community called Painted Tree was approved by the McKinney Planning & Zoning Commission at its Dec. 8 meeting.

The intention of the rezoning is to create a large-scale master-planned community, Tom Woliver, president and founder of Oxland Group LLC, stated in his letter of intent to the commission. The intention of the zoning request was to receive approval for the allowed uses at the property, not for the exact development of the site plans, which the city would review in a public meeting, staff said.

If approved, the development would ultimately include more than 1,000 acres with 3,400 residences, Woliver said in a September interview with Community Impact Newspaper.

Painted Tree will be located north of US 380 near Lake Forest Boulevard, offering houses ranging from detached townhomes and cottages to larger family homes and luxury estates.

During the meeting two residents came forward with concerns about the greenbelt in the development being preserved. Woliver told commissioners he was willing to sit down with the homeowners and discuss options for doing so.


Commissioners unanimously gave the project a favorable recommendation.

“I think this is one of the better presentations that we’ve seen on a development in some time,” Commissioner Brian Mantzey said. “I think it shows a lot of consideration that went in; it’s great to hear the notes of bringing nature into the subdivisions.”

The first homes in the community are expected to open in 2022. More information on the community can be found at www.paintedtreetx.com.
