About Frisco (Texas)

Frisco is an affluent city in Collin and Denton counties in Texas and a rapidly growing suburb of Dallas. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 116,989, up from 33,714 in the previous census, making it the twenty-sixth most populous city in the state of Texas. Frisco was the fastest-growing city in the United States in 2009, and also the fastest-growing city in the nation from 2000 to 2009. In the late 1990s, the northern DallasFort Worth Metroplex suburban development tide hit the northern border of Plano and spilled into Frisco, sparking explosive growth into the 2000s. Like many of the cities located in the booming northern suburbs of Dallas, Frisco serves as a bedroom community for many professionals who work in the DallasFort Worth Metroplex. Since 2003, Frisco has received the designation 'Tree City USA' by the National Arbor Day Foundation. In 2007, Frisco received the National Arbor Day Foundation Growth Award for the third year in a row.
