McKinney ISD Stadium – design description
New stadium for three local high schools in McKinney (Texas) will replace the McKinney Independent School District’s old ground, Ron Poe Stadium. The dated ground holds 7,100 people and dates back to 1962, but most importantly it severely lacks parking spaces with just 340 bays.
New location was selected along the southern gateway to McKinney. On 64 acres (26 hectares) there’s room for up to 3,000 parking spaces around the proposed stadium.
Double-tiered stands will offer 12,000 capacity along both sides, while the ends would be dedicated to giant screen and a large event centre that will also help generate non-sporting revenue for ISD.
Total price of the stadium is expected to be $50.3 million and will be financed through bonds issued by ISD in 2016.
