Texas’ 9th largest city makes the case for why it’s No. 1
Its terrain might be as flat as its name suggests, but Plano’s stock is rising as fast or faster than any other city in Texas. The community of 270,000 added a staggering 11,000 job to its economy in 2014 and 2015 with an onslaught of corporate relocations guaranteed to add to that total in the years to come.
“We’re a big city and we’re a strong community,” said Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere. “Despite being the ninth largest city in Texas and 72 square miles in size, we still have a sense of community and that really is a difference maker.”
