The City of McKinney allows residents two garage sales per address per calendar year. Garage sale permits are good for 10 days. You must allow one weekend free of garage sales between permits. Residents can request a garage sale permit in two ways:
Online. Create an account in the Citizen Self Service (CSS) portal to request a permit. Create an account and request a permit online. Once your information is received, a staff member will email back a garage sale permit that will be available to print before the sale begins.
In person. Come to the Development Services Building at 221 North Tennessee Street where kiosks are available in the lobby to create an account and apply online. If needed, a permit technician can assist you with the CSS system.
Garage sale permits are processed Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Garage sale signs are allowed on the permit holder's property. Off-site signs are only allowed with the property owner's permission. The permit should be displayed during the sale.
Please note that if you send your request more than a week before the sale, the permit will not be processed until the week of the sale. If you have questions, please call 972-547-7400.
