Geography

The Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area is growing unabatedly. The relatively flat north Texas landscape offers only limited impediments to development, including reservoirs to the north and east of Dallas. Growth has been primarily concentrated in the northern portion of the region. Residents are pushing the urban boundary beyond the once-distant suburbs of Plano and Frisco to McKinney and to the west along Highway 380 toward Denton. The southern suburbs offer developers ample affordable land.
