Public meeting will be March 18 at Old Settler's Recreation Center from 5 - 7 p.m.

McKINNEY, TX -- The City of McKinney will host a project overview open house to give residents an introduction to the East McKinney redevelopment and preservation projects. The event will be held March 18 at the Old Settler's Recreation Center outdoor pavilion, 1201 E. Louisiana St. Overview presentations will be given at 5:15 p.m. and 6:15 p.m., and residents can visit informational tables following the presentation to learn more about specific projects. Residents will have opportunities to provide feedback and can come and go anytime between 5 - 7 p.m. Spanish interpreters will be available. 

The event will be held outdoors and masks are required. Participants are encouraged to maintain social distancing. 

The city believes preserving our existing neighborhoods, their culture and characteristics, helps make McKinney Unique by nature. Part of preserving those neighborhoods means maintaining their infrastructure, maintaining and creating new public facilities, and expanding business opportunities so that they can continue to thrive. 

To make sure the city respects residents' voices in East McKinney, staff has been meeting with community members and asking for feedback. As the process of redevelopment and preservation proceeds, staff will continue to seek community input and develop constructive dialogue through public meetings in the community, the city's website and online surveys.
