News bit: Downtown Plano named one of best downtowns in nation

DowntownPlanoIHLarge

The hits keep coming for Downtown Plano. Months after being named one of the country’s best neighborhoods, this week it earned the designation of one of the best downtowns in the country from Livability.com.

The Dallas Morning News reports on the achievement:

Livability.com came up with its list by surveying more than 2,000 small to midsize cities on criteria such as low vacancy rates, new development and an influx of people. It also looked at culture and nightlife, as well as farmers markets, arts and parks, and other trends that indicated “whether people were in the downtown areas both day and night.”

Livability.com said Plano’s downtown comeback is “far from finished,” saying the addition of the DART rail line in 2002 connecting Plano to Dallas helped get downtown “back on track.”

Congratulations, Downtown Plano! We’re happy to deliver passengers to and from your DARTable destinations.
