proximity to major airports, and the rooftops and o " ce density are there to sustain a vibrant ... development.” McKinney City Council recently rezoned the 62 acres, which increased the estimated economic impact of the project from $199 million to $366 million, per the news release. The rezoning added high-density residen- tial and a four-acre retail component.

A new 62-acre, mixed-use devel- opment is coming to the corner of Van Tuyl Parkway and Meyer Way, facing SH 121 and located just west of McKinney’s Hub 121. The development will include a 2.5-acre park that will create walkable connectivity starting at the retail area along Weiskopf Avenue and continu- ing to the front of the future RPM xConstruction LLC headquarters along Meyer, according to a news release. About 16 acres of the project will be dedicated to an as-yet-unnamed ! nancial services group. The project will also develop apartments and single-family residences or additional o " ce space, depending on demand.

McKinney ISD voters will decide on four ballot propositions in the May 1 election that district leaders consider “extremely important,” including a $245 million school building bond. BY FRANCESCA D’ANNUNZIO

The bond would focus on two goals: updating and renovating cam- puses and accommodating growth, speci ! cally in the northern part of the district, according to a MISD news release.

Districtwide renovations and heating, ventilation and air conditioning improvements $127M

McKinney ISD will ask voters to consider the following items in May.

ON THE BALLOT

School building bond This ballot item will focus on updating and renovating existing campuses, expanding campuses and adding a new school (see above).

Voter approval tax rate election

This asks voters to approve an increase in the district’s tax rate for maintenance and operations, which is used for salaries, classroom supplies and other operational expenses. Approval would allow the district to then reduce the tax rate on its debt service, resulting in a $0.317 decrease to the district’s overall tax rate.

Attendance credit election The attendance credit election, if approved, would enable McKinney ISD to

continue making annual recapture tax payments the same way it has for the last six years. These payments go to the state and are reallocated to school districts that are less property wealthy. If the measure does not pass, the district would permanently lose nearly 17% of its tax base so that those tax dollars could go to other school districts. In order to compensate for that lost tax base, MISD may need to raise the tax rate by about 8 cents to stay on track with its current debt schedule.

Technology bond The $30 million technology bond would pay for new computers for

labs and buildings across the district. The measure would also enable MISD to continue its student laptop initiative, which provides a computer to every district student in grades 3-12.

MCKINNEY EDITION • JANUARY 2021

TOP STORY

The city has identi ! ed areas on the east side of McKinney for projects and studies landscape A CHANGING

B

Another project for this area has been called a “catalyst”—the reloca- tion and expansion of Tupps Brewery. Over the summer Tupps partnered with the McKinney Community Development Corp. for an $11 mil- lion grant. This will allow the corpo- ration to renovate the city’s historic grain site at the corner of Greenville Road and Dungan Street across from The Mill at East McKinney. Tupps will then be able to expand its oper- ations into the leased space as well as develop more entertainment options, such as an event lawn and silo shops. Adjacent to Tupps will be the East Louisiana parking lot, which will begin construction in 2021 as well. Having enough parking allows the city to build a dense development pattern, similar to what McKinney did in its current downtown, Shelton said. “We can get somewhere around 200 parking spaces on the property,” Shelton said. “There’s a lot of historic buildings … that could redevelop with shops or restaurants, but they don’t have enough parking in the area.” Parking works hand-in-hand with an upcoming Texas Department of Transportation project, which will reconstruct about sevenmiles ofHigh- way 5 into a four-lane divided road- way with sidewalks and pedestrian crossings. This project is expected to begin in 2023 and be completed in 2026 for $138 million, according to a TxDOT presentation. A tale of two downtowns When many of McKinney’s indus- trial companies went out of business, growth and development shifted to the west of Highway 5, Shelton said. The west side of McKinney has gro- cery stores, shopping centers and major employers, but East McKinney

The master plan for Old Settler’s Park has an option for a sport court as an amenity.

who live in the district, and hopefully in a positive way, but also just the way people look at East McKinney,” he said. Upcoming projects The January East McKinney update described the projects the communi- cations and outreach team will share as they progress. This included the relocation and expansion of Tupps Brewery, the newmunicipal complex, the neighborhood preservation study and ! ve road projects. A new city hall has been in the books since about 2006, Shelton said. The city o " ces out of a former bank building in downtown McKinney and has its operations spread out in about eight buildings it owns and leases.

There is not currently enough space to house all the city’s services under one roof, Shelton said. To help remedy this, in 2019 voters approved a $50 million bond for the construction of a newmunicipal com- plex. The city is currently looking to build it on 13 acres in the former area of Big Bass Towing, at Main and Vir- ginia streets, Shelton said. The space will also host Municipal Court parking and open spaces, he said. “Right now we’re so dispersed it’s di " cult for citizens and other cus- tomers or developers to understand where to go and who to talk to, so that’ll be one bene ! t,” Shelton said.

MAIN STREET ! BUSINESS The McKinney Main Street Program will be involved with the East McKinney engagement group, as it has relationships with businesses and others on the east side. It could assist with programming, events and business relations on this side of the highway.

lacks many of these amenities. Residents there have told the city they’ve felt forgotten, Shelton said. But improvements could come at a cost, and residents are aware of that as well. In recent Council meetings these residents voiced that they would not be able to a # ord higher property taxes that come with the area’s planned improvements. While the city’s goal is to reinvigo- rate this area and provide a nice place for residents to live, it is a balancing act, Mayor George Fuller said. “We are committed to protecting current residents from escalating property taxes that may otherwise drive residents out of the community as new and high value development occurs,” Fuller said in an email. “It is all a fragile balance, but done success- fully, will provide a great enhance- ment for the current and future residents of McKinney.” To that e # ort, city sta # will launch a study to measure the e # ects these projects will have on the existing neighborhoods. “We want to make sure that we understand what we can do to miti- gate any negative impacts,” Shelton said. This includes examining state law regarding neighborhood protections and researching examples from other cities, such as Austin, that have paved the way in creating a # ordable neigh- borhoods, Shelton said. In addition to quarterly updates at events ORDEROF O " cials said the timing for these projects will likely # uctuate over the next few years, but here is what is on tap this year: JANUARY: Citizen survey for city hall released, conceptual design continues, Infrastructure design for street projects continues 2021 JULY: Conceptual design for city hall ends, design development begins SUMMER !

City Council, sta # is looking at virtual and in-person meetings with east side residents on a regular basis. Angela Richardson-Woods is the new interim council member for Dis- trict 1, which covers McKinney’s east side. She said she would like to have a subcommittee of residents from the district provide context and insight as developers come into these his- toric neighborhoods. She also plans to meet with residents and hear their concerns. “With this community being unique by nature, we are also unique by cul- ture,” Richardson-Woods said, citing McKinney’s brand and tagline. “We have so much diversity that is rich.” Richardson-Woods comes to City Council after having served on the McKinney Community Development Corp. board. She now has a front-row seat to seeing the vision for the east side come to life, she said. “Hopefully it will give the feel that it’s not a broken section of the com- munity,” she said. “It will all $ ow.” A look ahead As these projects move forward, regular updates will be made on a city-curated webpage, which can be found at www.mckinneytexas.org/ eastside. The website will serve as a central location where residents and stakeholders can check into the proj- ects and provide comments. There will also be engagement opportunities for the public, such as the ongoing survey for what ameni- ties the new city hall should provide. Upcoming outreach meetings will have a goal of engaging residents who might not have Internet access or who cannot easily navigate a web page, Shelton said. City sta # stressed their goal to engage the residents and preserve the history and culture that exists on the east side while also moving forward with key redevelopment projects. “There are a lot of exciting things happening, but a building is not going to go up tomorrow,” Assistant City Manager Kim Flom said. A lot of these projects are at their beginning stages, so we’re at the perfect time to make sure we have that umbrella to communicate.”
