McKinney City Council voted to approve an annexation that will add 127 acres to the city at a Jan. 16 meeting.

The details

The approved request was to annex 127 acres in the northeast sector of the city, just southwest of Trinity Falls. The request was approved unanimously, with Mayor Pro Tem Charlie Philips absent.

The approval included the annexation, as well as zoning for the land tract. The site was zoned for two uses, including agricultural district zoning on the north end of the site and residential district zoning on the southern portion, according to the presentation.

McKinney Director of Planning Jennifer Arnold said the annexation process began in June and included a council resolution, public hearings and a consent to annex petition.

The city will provide water and wastewater utilities, as well as fire and police protection, to the annexed area, according to city documents.
