City on the move!
It would be an understatement to just call Frisco “a growing city.” It has firmly planted itself on many lists ranging from “Best Neighborhoods” to “Best Farmer’s Market.” But this community is far from your typical small town.
Everyone is Taking Notice
Frisco is an affluent city in Collin and Denton counties in Texas and a rapidly growing suburb of Dallas, approximately 25 minutes from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport. With major highways north-south and east-west, the city is well-positioned on the path of growth in the Dallas area.
As of October 1, 2013, the city had a Population Estimate of 135,220, up from 116,989, in the previous census (2010). Frisco was the fastest-growing city in the United States in 2009, and also the fastest-growing city in the nation from 2000 to 2009. In the late 1990s, the northern Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex suburban development tide hit the northern border of Plano and spilled into Frisco, sparking explosive growth into the 2000s. Like many of the cities located in the booming northern suburbs of Dallas, Frisco serves as a bedroom community for many professionals who work in the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex.
A 2007 Forbes study named Frisco as the seventh-fastest growing suburb in the United States. In 2011, CNN listed Frisco as one of the "Best Places to Live" in the nation, and Forbes ranked 7th in its list of "America's 25 Best Places To Move"
A Sportsman’s Paradise!
Frisco is also known for its passion for art! Outdoor sculptures celebrating the history of Frisco can be found throughout the city. The largest private collection of contemporary outdoor sculpture on public display without a fee can be found in Hall Office Park (all owned by Craig Hall) with works by James Surls, Frances Bagley and Isaac Smith.
Because many are choosing to plant roots in the Frisco area, Frisco ISD is at the top of the fastest growing school districts in the state and nation growing by 10-30 percent annually the past 12 years. FISD ended the 2008-2009 school year with approximately 31,000 students. The district grew by a little more than 10 percent this year; as of October 1, 2009, there are 33,895 students enrolled.
Frisco is home to some incredible sports venue for North Texas. From baseball, ice hockey, soccer, cycling, basketball and golf, Frisco has much to offer the sports enthusiasts and Frisco is huge on youth sports. Frisco is home to the Frisco Roughriders at the Dr. Pepper Ballpark, FC Dallas at the Pizza Hut park, Fieldhouse for basketball and NHL Dallas Stars training facility at Dream Center. Ifgolf is your game, Frisco offers three public golf courses: Plantation Resort, Westin Stonebriar and the Trails of Frisco. Some home communities offer private memberships to their resident access golf courses such as Heritage Lakes and Willow Pond. Frisco has a Superdrome - a world-class Olympic cycling haven for both professional and amateur cyclists.
Frisco also offers Frisco Athletic Center off Preston Road and Wade. Frisco residents pay resident rates. It has two state-of-the-art gym fitness facilities, indoor and outdoor aquatic fun facility, two aerobics studios, basketball courts and Cafe in the facility. Childcare is also provided for children from 8 weeks old through 7 years. The Zone is a designated area for children from 8 through 12 years. This room has 2 foosball tables, pool table, ping pong, air hockey and Wii video games. This is the first Frisco Athletic Center. Upon Frisco's complete build-out, Frisco plans to have 4 of these facilities to service its residents
Most residents move to the Frisco Texas area because of job employment. Plano Texas, just south of Frisco is home to many large corporations such as Frito-Lay, Pepsi Bottling, Electronic Data System (EDS), Perot Systems, Fujitsu, Erickson, Bank of America formerly known as Countrywide, Computer Associates and McAfee. In Frisco, T-Mobile, IKEA, NBC Telemundo 29 are homes for some major corporations. Hence, many professionals choose to live around the Plano, Frisco, McKinney and Allen areas. Depending on your price ranges, you can find homes all over these big corporations. Frisco Texas becomes one of their top choices because of the floor plans, home features, master-planned communities and value for their money.
