Since its incorporation in 1956, Colleyville remained a sleepy rural community hidden away from the hectic pace of the busy Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. But by the early 1990s, the city was poised for a new chapter. Attracted by the small community’s proximity to DFW International Airport and the larger cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, newcomers flocked to the area. Within a decade, the city’s population increased more than 50 percent and Colleyville’s farm population was soon outnumbered by CEOs and celebrities. Colleyville is now acclaimed as one of the premier communities in North Texas.
The city is recognised for its well-planned growth and development. Many factors contribute to Colleyville’s winning ways—a public education system recognised as one of the best in the nation, low crime rate, outstanding parks and recreation facilities, proximity to the large employment sectors of Dallas and Fort Worth, and a “town and country” lifestyle beyond compare.
Colleyville has become a perennial favourite on “best of…” lists in Dallas and Fort Worth, across Texas, and around the nation. Money magazine named the city to its list of “Best 100 Places to Live in America,” awarding it the highest ranking in Texas. Colleyville’s small town ambiance and big city amenities continue to earn it a place on the “best” lists of popular publications, including Newsweek and D Magazine. www.colleyville.com
