Plano is the 9th largest city in Texas. It has a population of 269,000 people and covers 71 square miles in the northeastern part of the state. Located in Collin and Denton Counties, area code 972 also extends into Dallas and the cities of Frisco, Allen, Cedar Hill, Garland and Irving among others. The city of Plano sits just 20 miles from Dallas, 50 miles from Fort Worth, and 215 miles from the capital city of Austin.
Although the city of Plano was originally settled in 1840 and incorporated in 1873, it didn’t experience a true population boom until the 1970’s. The University of Texas at Dallas was established in 1969 and farming began to be phased out as the main source of income in Plano. Many major corporations began to move into the city because of its proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, and the population increased quickly. Now the city boasts a strong and varied economy, and Plano sits as the 9th biggest city in Texas and 69th largest in the United States.
