Collin County is booming. Those of us who live here and do business here see it firsthand as we watch the massive influx of top-notch retailers, service businesses, home builders and professionals into Plano, Frisco, McKinney and so many other great cities.
But with growth comes growing pains. As the Dallas Morning News’ Brandon Formby reported in its May 24 story, ensuring Collin County has the transportation infrastructure to support rapid, substantial growth is a concern. Similarly, Formby pointed to the pressing need for additional quality schools in these high-growth cities, quoting Frisco Mayor Maher Maso as saying: “The secret isn’t in chasing numbers, but in providing ‘the quality of services and education’ that people want…Seventeen years ago, we had five schools…Today, we have 61.”
