Demographics and Values

Plano is a small city in north Texas and is considered part of the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area. Plano is far enough removed enough to have its own charm and personality, but close enough to Dallas to provide convenient access to many big-city amenities. The region’s economy is centered around several large corporations - Toyota, Liberty Mutual, and JC Penney are just a few major corporations with regional offices in the city. Politics in the city are fairly moderate but lean to the right - Collin county was won by Republicans in the 2016 election by about 15%. The surrounding area however is not as reliable of a “red” district compared to other parts of the state - the Dallas region overall, including Plano, is known to be more welcoming and inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community than the more conservative towns of Texas. Along with Houston, Plano is noted as having one of the state’s largest populations of Chinese Americans, with Chinese cultural organizations, churches, and markets having a visible presence in the region.
