The populations of Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village experienced slight growth from 2018 to 2019, according to estimates released May 20 by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The bureau estimates that Flower Mound had a population of 79,135 residents in 2019, a 2.03% increase from 2018.
Lewisville experienced similar growth. Last year, the city had 109,212 residents, a 2.13% increase from 2018, according to the estimates.
“I think North Texas in general is an appealing place to be for people to move,” said Lori Fickling, Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce CEO. “We benefit from being on I-35, and I also think local leaders have done a great job in making sure that this is a great place to live. Our taxes are low because our business community is large, and it keeps our residents' taxes down.”
Highland Village experienced just a 0.42% increase in population from 2018 to 2019. The bureau estimates that the city had 16,668 residents in 2019.
Laurie Mullens, Highland Village director of marketing and communications, said this is mostly because the city’s population experienced most of its growth from the 1970s and 1990s.
“We are a 5.5-square-mile community, and we are 95% built-out,” Mullens said. “People choose Highland Village because of the proximity to Lake Lewisville, our rolling hills, the parks and open space and our extensive trail system. People tell us they like living in Highland Village because we are a safe, close-knit community with many shopping, dining, and recreation activity options.”
Data shows that from 2010-19, the area has experienced steady growth. Lewisville’s population grew by about 13.85%, whereas Flower Mound and Highland Village saw 22% and 10.08% growth during the same period, respectively.
