McKinleyville Town Center Master Plan

McKinleyville Town Center

Section 2350 "Town Center" of the McKinleyville Community Plan calls for the creation of a unique identity for McKinleyville through the development of a viable town center that serves as a community focal point and contains a mixture of land uses with a center for social/community interaction that encourages bicycle and pedestrian travel and allows for convenient and safe automobile access.
