As Mayor, I would like to welcome you to Carrollton. Whether you are a visitor or have chosen Carrollton as your place to call home, our great City offers many advantages varying from business opportunities, employment, location, and transportation, to quality of life services and activities, a wide variety of neighborhoods and housing, excellent school districts, and outstanding medical facilities. While every city lists advantages, Carrollton has previously been recognized by MONEY Magazine as the 15th Best Place to Live in the United States and by Forbes as the 12th Best Place to Relocate. If you are moving here then you have obviously picked us as #1 and I would like to extend a robust “welcome to the neighborhood.”
Experience Carrollton through our award-winning sports complexes, libraries, hike and bike trails, nature preserve, and parks and leisure activities. Learn more about Carrollton’s historic past at the A.W. Perry Homestead Museum. In the summer, beat the heat at our expansive Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex or Thomas Splash Park. In the fall, enjoy free concerts, rides, and games at the Festival at the Switchyard. To enjoy more of the hometown flavor of Carrollton, visit our Downtown shops and restaurants for an eclectic mix of shopping and dining. Behind these charming brick facades there is a sophisticated approach to sustainable development and economic vitality.
Carrollton is centrally convenient to the urban amenities of the entire Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and is located 15-20 minutes from both the Dallas Love Field and DFW International airports. With three DART light rail stations, Carrollton is well-positioned to become one of the four major transportation hubs in the DFW Metroplex. Besides the arrival of light rail, Carrollton is serviced by major highways IH-35E, TX 121, and the George Bush Turnpike. No wonder Carrollton is said to be the place “where connections happen.”
Become familiar with all that Carrollton has to offer by visiting the City’s official website at cityofcarrollton.com or call City Hall at 972-466-3000. If you have questions, or would like more information about Carrollton, our City staff would be pleased to assist you.
Enjoy your Carrollton experience.
Kevin Falconer, Mayor
