Farmers Branch is a great place for families! The city always has events for families to attend on holidays! The city itself is very responsible of its residents. Beautiful houses, friendly neighbors, everything is close which makes it very convenient! The city is well taken care of! The schools are wonderful, the recreation center is very involved in helping the kids around! Police is very helpful!

I have been a Farmers Branch resident for over 20 years. The small business community is a close-knit community full of loyal customers. The neighborhoods near my residence are mainly well-kept with more people coming and going than I can remember over the last couple years. Perhaps this is because of the yearly rise in property taxes, but we have yet to see the commercial development needed to continue growing the city. The city really should address the vacancies in shopping centers and parking lots. This is a blemish for the city as a whole and detracts would-be families from being able to call Farmers Branch home with cities like Addison, Carrollton, Coppell, Lewisville, and others all within a 10 minute drive. This city needs some youth and vigor to add or I fear more and more potential families will elect to live elsewhere, stifling any commercial development opportunities and starving the community of economic growth for years to come.
It is conveniently located to stores, movies, restaurants. Clean, safe, and friendly. Easy access to highways. Close to work!
