DENTON - The latest estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that the staggering growth of small and medium-size cities across the Dallas region shows no sign of slowing; Denton is no stranger to growth.

With the University of North Texas, Texas Woman’s University, burgeoning public schools and large corporate businesses making their home here, the city’s population continues to expand.

The U.S. Census shows Denton’s estimated 2013 population climbing to 123,099 residents, a 7.8 percent increase from 2010.

Denton County’s growth shows a much larger jump with the 2013 population ballooning to 753,363, a 13.7 percent increase from 2010.

In a quarterly report for Denton ISD released in February 2014, Templeton Demographics and Metrostudy show the number of households in the Denton school district swelled from 47,811 in 2010 to 52,288 in 2014.

The city is not alone in experiencing growth. Outlying towns in Denton County have also experienced a significant increase in residents.

Texas also had five of the top ten cities in population gain, and six of the 13 fastest growing by percentage — San Marcos, Georgetown, Frisco, Conroe, McKinney and New Braunfels.
