Ask the editor: How has Frisco changed in five years?


One of the first stories I covered as editor when the Frisco edition of Community Impact Newspaper launched in August 2013 was the announcement that Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys were coming to town.

From that point on, it seemed like a new major development popped up every week.

The subjects of development, housing and business trends, Frisco Independent School District growth and road construction have dominated our coverage in the months and years since we began publishing.

The city has grown from a population of 134,800 to 177,270 at the most recent city estimate—an increase of more than 31 percent.

Although as managing editor I’m not hands-on with the day-to-day coverage of Frisco anymore, I eagerly read the news from our Editor Lindsey Juarez and Senior Reporter Nicole Luna as they tackle the ups and downs of life in an ever-changing and ever-growing Frisco.
