McKinney voters will consider a bond election on the May ballot.

McKinney City Council members voted unanimously to add the item to the spring election ballot at a Feb. 6 meeting.

The details

The bond election added to the ballot by council members includes five propositions totaling $485.5 million for municipal facility projects across the city.

The bond package was determined by a 36-person citizen bond committee that met multiple times in the fall. The committee recommended the municipal bond election be called at a Dec. 19 meeting after considering a number of unfunded projects as well as the city’s debt capacity.

The specifics

Proposition A includes $106 million for parks and recreation projects, including:
  • $25 million for various park improvements, including Towne Lake Park
  • $20 million for ball fields at Gabe Nesbitt park
  • $60 million for a new multigenerational recreational facility
  • $1 million to add more pickleball courts
Proposition B includes $36 million for a new 36,000-square-foot municipal court facility. The existing facility, located just south of Historic Downtown McKinney, was built in 1967.

Proposition C includes $30 million for improvements to the McKinney Public Works South campus. Improvements at the facility would impact a number of departments, including water and wastewater utilities, street maintenance, parks maintenance and more.

Proposition D encompasses $70 million for public safety projects. The proposed uses for these funds include:
  • $5 million for a driver training pad
  • $5 million for future facility land acquisitions
  • $5.5 million for a remodel of Fire Station No. 3
  • $12.5 million to reconstruct Fire Station No. 8
  • $20 million to renovate the McKinney Police Department administration building
  • $22 million for a future fire station
Proposition E would dedicate $243.5 million for various road projects. This includes:
  • $140 million-plus for street expansions
