Living in Frisco
Frisco is an affluent city located in Collin and Denton counties. It is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and is located approximately 25 miles from both Dallas Love Field and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
As of December 17, 2015, the city had an estimated population of 151,960. 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.
Since 2003, Frisco has received the designation “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
Like many Dallas suburbs, Frisco is accumulating many retail properties, including Stonebriar Centre (opened August 2000), a 165-store regional mall, and IKEA (opened 2005), a furniture store with an area of 310,000 sq ft. Retail establishments and restaurant chains line Preston Road, which is one of the major north-south-running traffic arteries in the city.
Frisco took a different economic track than many surrounding cities and elected to use a fractional percent of local sales tax to fund the Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) rather than DART, the regional transportation body. The effectiveness of the FEDC, whose primary purpose is to reallocate such tax dollars to commercial ventures, is a matter of public debate.
Frisco also contains Frisco Square, a mixed-use development area of the city that will become the new downtown. Frisco Square has about 250 rental residential units, seven restaurants, about 40,000 square feet of commercial office space and a few personal service locations. The major development in the project is the new City Hall and main library and a public commons. A Cinemark theater opened in December 2010. In 2012, a hospital, Forest Park Medical Center, was built north of the theater.
