Money Magazine:
Plano is Top in Texas, No. 3 in Nation

Plano is honored as a great place to work because it's also a great place to live.

A lot of things are headed to Plano, it seems. People. Corporate headquarters. New development. More accolades.

Under that last category, Money Magazine has named Plano as the third best place to live in the nation, and the best in Texas. City officials and backers couldn’t be more pleased.

“We’re a big city and a strong community,” Mayor Harry LaRossiliere said, according to Community Impact publications. “[We are] a city of 270,000 [but[ it feels like you know your neighbors and those around.”

Plano has been in the news a lot lately for corporate relocations, particularly that of Toyota North America, which is moving its operations from Torrance, California, to Plano.  Roughly 3,000 workers from California are expected to relocate to North Texas, and the company expects to fill 1,000 positions with new faces, according to the Dallas Business Journal.

The city already is home to the headquarters of Frito-Lay and J.C. Penney Co. Inc..

Money said, “What makes Plano a great place to work is that it’s also a great place to live and raise a family.”
