McKinney City Council members will meet March 19 to consider rezoning requests for potential multifamily and commercial developments, according to city documents.

The gist

The meeting agenda includes two rezoning requests. The first item details a request to rezone a lot at 121 Dorsey Ave. from single family residential zoning to a zoning that allows for commercial uses. If the request is approved, the property would be used to house multiple tenants including barbers and estheticians, according to city documents.

The second rezoning request would allow for the development of as many as 350 multifamily units in south McKinney. The project, proposed by real estate investment firm Allen Harrison Company, was considered and unanimously recommended by the McKinney Planning and Zoning Committee at a Feb. 27 meeting.

The project, located at the southeast corner of McKinney Ranch Parkway and future Collin McKinney Parkway, would also include the development of a community recreation area, according to a presentation by the developer at the Feb. 27 meeting.

The agenda also includes a specific use permit request for a new McDonald’s location, as well as a resolution to adopt increased membership rates for the Apex Centre. This item comes after a presentation on the proposed increased rates at a March 5 meeting.

Other items on the agenda include:
  • A resolution to authorize a $2.28M construction contract for a taxilane project at McKinney National Airport.
  • A resolution to authorize an $820,000 contract for additional design services for the East Louisiana Street infrastructure improvements project.
  • A resolution to name a park in the Craig Ranch area to the McKinney Corporate Center Park.
Also on the agenda

City Council members will also hear a presentation on the city’s refuse rates at a work session meeting at 3 p.m. March 19 prior to the regular meeting.

The council approved the selection of new trash and recycling collection and recycling processing service providers in August 2023. Frontier Waste Solutions and Balcones Recycling are expected to begin service in October. The new servicing companies will also bring with them a new rate structure, according to a presentation by city staff at a Dec. 19 meeting.

The work session meeting agenda also includes a discussion about the History of McKinney Airport Advisory Board. This board is not currently included in the list of existing city commissions and boards on the city’s website.

The council will meet at 6 p.m. March 19 at 222 N. Tennessee St. in McKinney. The meeting will be livestreamed for those unable to attend in person.
