Crime & Safety
Plano is a wonderful city for families of all sizes. After living in Arlington, Irving and traversing the north Texas metroplex, I have seen much excitement over opportunity here in our state- though no city's inhabitants are as excited as Plano's. This city is a land of opportunity and growth; a gem in education and experience; the most enthralling part to all this: the city is still expanding rapidly. If you are looking for a safe, family-friendly, connected, neo-industrial, diverse, beautiful city, then Plano is your best option. Trust me, after 16 years in this area, I have seen swarms of people moving in from all over the country- Chicago, Washington, Denver, New York- so my advice to you is: do not get left behind!
You get all you need. Good location Great schools Shopping Dinning Entertainment Parks Rec centers, gyms, pools Nature trails Low tax Responsible city government Great police,fire fighters, teachers Top notch Medical facilities, libraries Employers Everything DFW near by Great neighborhoods Two great downtowns Great mix of old and new, traditional and contemporary homes Established neighborhoods with sense of community and tree lined streets Great home resale Balloon Festival, Music Festival, July fireworks etc Wealthy part of the town is on West Side that borders North Dallas. We enjoy living here, raising our family is fun and intend to retire here as well.
Plano is a quiet city from the Dallas area. There is diversity here(lots of Hispanics and Asians) , but I tend to see more of the old white population in my neighborhood. Recently, more stores and cafes opened up in the city, allowing us teens to hang out at many places on a weekend night. It's a pretty quiet city, but It's defiantly not boring!
