Plano is a principal city in the Dallas-Fort Worth region located in North Texas. With a population of 7.4 million people, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is the largest urban region in the state of Texas and the fourth largest in the United States. Dallas-Fort Worth is also one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, supplying 4.5 million jobs. As a large metropolitan area, there are many future challenges that are beyond the ability of a single city to address. Working cooperatively with the regional governments, Plano and its neighboring cities will need to find complementary solutions to solve broader problems and attain area goals. The Comprehensive Plan has identified several regional topics to address.
