1. We are McKinney. We are unique by nature.

The City of McKinney has launched an #IAMUNIQUEBYNATURE campaign to share the essence of our brand: Unique by nature. It defines the city’s image for our residents, businesses and visitors. It speaks to our inherent uniqueness and embodies the spirit of our community: our historic downtown, cultural diversity, charming neighborhoods and our business-friendly environment. Our brand also encompasses our natural assets: rolling hills, parks, streams and lakes.

What makes you unique by nature? Share your story with us! #IAMUNIQUEBYNATURE
