    • Money magazine rated Plano as #3 Best Places to Live. This article is a ranking primarily on the growth the city. These 2 articles are ranking cities based on two different aspects of the city. Plano has been pretty much built out for years.

  1. Yes. I moved to Frisco 4 year ago from Southern California. I Love the city and the people but its growing at a rapid pace and Texas isn’t prepared for it at. They are bringing the people and Business to Plano and Frisco but someone seriously forgot about the infrastructure. So basically I wake up to L.A. traffic. Nothing like home(smile)
