Progress Reports

January - December 2017 

Plano is a safe, smart and world-class city that offers our citizens an abundance of cultural and recreational opportunities. We are a diverse and inclusive city that comfortably competes on the global stage for any business, family or individual looking for a great place to call home.

We have grown to be the epicenter for economic development in Collin County and North Texas. We have reached this position by being intentional in on our actions. An example is Legacy Business Park that was created by visionary Ross Perot more than 30 years ago. Today the park touts iconic corporations like: Toyota, FedEx Office, Liberty Mutual Insurance, JP Morgan Chase, Boeing Global Services, JC Penney, Frito-Lay, Pepsi-Co, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Capital One, NTT DATA, McAfee and Pizza Hut, as corporate residents. 

Our vibrant economy helps us deliver outstanding services and amenities to our citizens. This past year, we were recognized as the safest city in America with a population over 250,000. Our school district was rated the 4th best in the nation and graduates 97% of our high school students while 95% of them pursue higher education.  No matter where you live in Plano, you are about a 15 minute walk from one of our 85 parks. Just recently, our Downtown was designated an Arts District. 

We proudly call ourselves The City of Excellence. It is a reminder to engage in the best practices that will allow us that we seek to deliver the highest quality of life to our resident’s every day. We strive for Plano to be the city of choice in North Texas.
