Challenge: The McKinney Communications Infrastructure Master Plan is a result of the City’s desire to lead the County in telecommunications infrastructure and technology. McKinney is a fast-growing and progressive community in the Dallas/Fort Worth part of Texas. In 2014, Money Magazine named them the best place to live in the United States.
With McKinney’s rapid growth and an established reputation for fostering a high quality of life, City leadership needed help to develop its vision. Their desire is to embrace technological changes in the telecommunications sector with the goal of bringing smart city options forward.
Solution: The McKinney Communications Infrastructure Master Plan project is divided into two phases. Phase one determines and sets baselines. This work has focused on: fiber master planning, evaluating health concerns of 5G/Small Cell, policy review, and recommendations and cost recovery study. As part of this process, HR Green has participated in community outreach sessions with City staff.
The second phase of the master plan is building on these foundations and exploring opportunities in McKinney for enhanced broadband and telecommunications infrastructure. HR Green is working to identify options along with smart city possibilities and partnerships that will help the City meet its goals to be a leader in technology.
