PLANO, TEXAS – THE CITY OF EXCELLENCE
Settlers from Europe came to the area near the now known as Plano, Texas in the early 1840s. New facilities such as a sawmill, gristmill and a new store brought more and more people to the area. Plano was incorporated way back in June of 1873 which was six months after the Houston & Central Railroad opened which made the city the trading center of the farming community of southwest Collin County. By 1847, the population of Plano had grown to more than 500 residents. A large fire leveled most of the business district in 1881 and the town had to re-build and business again started to boom throughout the 1880s. In 1881, the city also assumed responsibility for what is now known as the Plano Independent School District (PISD) which ended the days of it being served only by private institutions or schools.
After many years of slow growth, Plano reached 1,304 residents in 1900 and then on to 3,695 in 1960. After World War II, Plano began to feel the “boom” some of its neighbors had felt in the years prior. Several series of public works project went underway and a change in taxes that removed the farming community from the town helped to rev up the population. Nearing 1970, the population grew to nearly 17,900 and by the fall of 1980 it had exploded to over 72,000 residents that called Plano their home. Street development, new schools and sewer systems kept up pace with the massive increase of new residents.
Heading into the 1980’s several large corporations packed up and moved their headquarters to Plano which included J.C. Penny and Frito-Lay which encourage further growth for the city from other large companies. In spring of 1994 the population had boomed to over 140,000 residents and was recognized as an “All American City” and by 2000 the population increased to over 222,000 people, making it one of Dallas’ Largest Suburbs.
Look forward to 2018 and Plano occupies approximately 72 square miles with a population of more than 270,000 residents that call it home. Not that long-ago Plano was a sleepy, nearly forgotten downtown commercial center of a farming community covered up by Dallas’ suburban expansion. The downtown area of Plano is now experiencing a renaissance and is reemerging as a new urban center stimulated in part by the coming of a light rail transit system. In downtown Plano alone there has been over 50,000 sqft of private development and over 1100 urban apartments built or approved to be built around the historic commercial and civic buildings that have been restored in the 80-acre area.
