McKINNEY – The senior population growth is outpacing that of several surrounding cities and Collin County as a whole.

McKinney’s population of seniors 65 and older increased more than 67 percent from 2010 to 2015, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Collin County’s senior population grew more than 50 percent during the same time period.

In 2015, McKinney had nearly 13,000 seniors—a jump from the approximately 7,600 seniors in 2010.

Reasons that seniors are moving to McKinney include affordable housing and proximity to children and grandchildren.

The median home value in 2015 in McKinney was $72,200 less than Frisco, $26,200 less than Plano and $15,100 less than Allen, according to data from the Census Bureau.
