Frisco – a Great Place to Live!

We are so glad you are interested in our great city! Climate, convenience, a “small town” character, and accessibility to downtown Dallas are only a few of the qualities that make Frisco such a desirable location.Frisco is home to corporate headquarters for the Dallas Stars and regional offices for Levi Strauss and Budweiser. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Love Field are within a 30-minute drive. Arts, entertainment and recreation abound in Frisco, including Junior League Championship hockey, Minor League baseball, Major League soccer, and National Championship cyclist racing.

While location enhances the value of Frisco as a residential and commercial site, the warm climate also makes an attractive contribution. Abundant sunshine can be enjoyed more than 234 days annually. Although 66 degrees is the year-round average temperature, there are over three months of highs over 90 degrees. The area averages about 79 rainy days and 39 freezing days each year. July and August are the warmest months with January the coolest.

Frisco is under home rule and utilizes the city manager-city council form of government. Numerous volunteer boards appointed by the City Council provide administrative and leadership services. The Community Development Corporation and the Economic Development Corporation are funded by a half-cent sales tax.

Taxes

Frisco’s property taxes are made up of a city tax, school district tax, Collin County or Denton County tax, and a college district tax (Collin County). Frisco ranks below the average rate for property taxes in the eight communities that surround it. Frisco’s current sales tax is 8.25%. In 1991, the City of Frisco voted to adopt a half-cent sales tax to be used for the promotion of economic development. A second half-cent sales tax funds the Community Development Corporation.
