Plano was founded as far back as 1840. The city today looks strikingly different from what it did not only in the 19th century, but even as recently as 20 years ago. Continuous development since the 1970′s has given Plano the modern façade it has today. Just 19 miles north of Dallas, Plano’s strategic location for economic and business development has caught the eye of major corporations and home seekers alike. Frito-Lay, JCPenney and Cadbury have made Plano their home along with just over 250,000 others.
Plano garners national recognition
Plano residents are drawn to the area not only by the convenient location, but also the great quality of life highlighted by the national media in recent years. Plano has made the “Best Places to Live” list of CNN Money Magazine more than once. Forbes.com selected Plano as one of the “Top Suburbs To Live Well” for Dallas. And the whole area took notice when CNN Money ranked Plano as the wealthiest city in the United States with a population over 250,000. (The US Census Bureau confirmed it in 2008 by comparing the median household income for all U.S. cities.) And then, to top it off, Forbes magazine named Plano the safest city to live in America in October 2010. Add to all that some of the best schools in the nation, and you can see why folks are excited to call Plano “home”.
