Plano named 2012 city to raise a child

Dallas and Collin County parents have again named Plano as the "Best City or Suburb to Raise a Child" for 2012. Nestled roughly 10 miles north of downtown Dallas, Plano consistently measures up when it comes to economics, safety, education, transportation, environmental preservation, arts, culture and charm. Dallas Child Magazine readers have again spoken and the City of Plano is their choice when it came to the ideal place to raise a family.

Parents considered many factors in selecting Plano as the place to live with their family – factors like:

  • Plano’s median family income and job growth consistently exceed the national average;
  • A highly accredited and nationally-recognized school district and colleges;
  • Great shopping and entertainment venues; plus family-friendly cultural and historical events; and
  • Award-winning parks and recreation facilities.
Dallas Child Magazine solicits votes each year in their BEST FOR FAMILIES series which highlights family-friendly business, events, and activities – check out the December 2012 issue here. (11/30/12)
