Lone Star State Hosts Fastest Growing Cities!

Three of the nation’s five fastest-growing cities—and seven of the top 15—are in the Lone Star State, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The data shows that San Marcos, Frisco, and Cedar Park, Texas were ranked No. 1, 2, and 4 in percentage population growth between 2012 and 2013.

Largely fueled by the oil boom in the western part of the United States, Texas is in the midst of a significant energy rush and the effects are being felt in towns and cities across the state.

San Marcos—located between Austin and San Antonio—has topped the list of expanding cities with more than 50,000 people for the second year in a row, showing growth of 8 percent between July 2012 and 2013 to 54,076 people. Mayor Daniel Guerrero noted that the city has been enjoying steady growth for years and is continuously laying down new roads, expanding existing ones, adding bike paths, and repairing or replacing old utility pipelines. “So throughout San Marcos you see a multitude of construction,” Guerrero said.

Frisco, a suburb about 30 miles north of Dallas, has experienced steady population growth as well. “We are just used to it,” said Mayor Maher Maso.“Just 15 years ago there were only five schools in Frisco’s main school district. Now, there are 56 and seven under construction,” Maso commented. Those numbers tell the story of who’s moving in. The city’s median age is 34, one-third of the population is under 17, and about 10 percent are under age 5. Maso said this has translated into an active community.

Cedar Park is the fourth fastest-growing city in the nation. According to population estimates released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau, Cedar Park’s population grew 5.6 percent, adding 3,281 new residents over the past year. Cedar Park attracts residents from all over the globe because of its unique charm, close proximity to Austin, and the beauty surrounding the Lower Colorado River Lake System. It has more than 860 acres of park land and boasts a variety of family entertainment and recreation such as hiking, bicycling, water sports, live music, fine wine, great food, and shopping. Cedar Park has also been ranked by the Texas Department of Public Safety as one of the safest cities of its size in Texas. Considering all of these factors, it is no wonder that Cedar Park’s population is rapidly increasing.
