The McKinney Community Development Corporation board has approved the McKinney Performing Arts Center's request for up to $20,000 for one LED marquee sign to be placed on the corner of Louisiana and Kentucky streets. A second LED marquee sign is being funded by Emerson. 

The new signage will help promote the activities of the McKinney Performing Arts Center as well as downtown events. 

Final design approvals will be made by City Council and the new signs could be constructed and installed in the next few months, officials said.
