FRISCO - Frisco has joined the ranks of cities with estimated populations of 150,000 residents.

Frisco has been one of the country’s fastest-growing cities for years.

New homes are being steadily added to the mix. So far this year, the city has issued, on average, 198 single-family building permits each month. Buildout is projected to reach about 350,000.

The latest population estimate is staggering when you think back to 2000, when the census recorded just 33,714 people in this suburb straddling the Collin-Denton county line.

The latest focus is the city’s “$5 Billion Mile,” which plays off the value of four new mixed-use developments along a stretch of the tollway.

Among them is The Star in Frisco, a partnership with the city, Frisco ISD and the Dallas Cowboys. By this time next year, the Cowboys will have moved out of Valley Ranch and will be calling Frisco home.
