Did you know that Flower Mound is a GREAT place to live? Of course you do, you live here! But, did you know that everyone else sees that Flower Mound is a great place to live? Our community is continually being recognized as one of the best places to live in America, the safest community in Texas, and a great place to do business. These accolades have not come by accident, but the hard work of everyone in our community. In my opinion, what separates Flower Mound from every other place in America is the people who call this place home. It is not our location, though we are perfectly situated within North Texas. It is not our aesthetics, though our unique environment and design standards make us beautiful. No, for me it is the people who have been drawn to what Flower Mound has to offer and are continually striving to make our community better each and every day. The efforts and desires of our residents to live in a great community has led to those who serve us to strive for greatness also. Our Police and Fire Departments work hard to keep our residents safe from all harm. They are led by the best Chiefs in the world in Chief Kancel (PD) and Chief Greaser (FD). Our Town Staff does it’s utmost to serve all residents while being responsible with all that they are accountable for. Our staff’s efforts have been recognized throughout the state and nationally. Our finance department has been recognized 32 years in a row by the Government Finance Officers Association for Excellence in Financial Reporting, and we have received a AAA Bond rating by both Fitch and S&P. Our Parks and Recreation team has received awards for Recreational Facility Design (Twin Coves Park), a Promotional Award for Independence Fest, and Programing Excellence Awards. Our Communications team was recognized last year throughout the region, the state, and the nation by winning 30 awards for their hard work. All of this is to say that it has taken the effort of many people to make Flower Mound the great Town that it is. I would like to say “thank you” to each of you for the things that you do each day to enhance our town. Ultimately, we are a community of neighbors being neighbors, and it will take all of us to continue to see Flower Mound thrive. I am happy to be in this community with you and look forward to always working together to see the best for our Town. #1 Most Livable Small City in the U.S. - http://tinyurl.com/y2op6dwb #2 Best Place for Young Families in Texas - http://tinyurl.com/y8bfz7ft #3 Best Place to Build a Forever Home - http://tinyurl.com/y4nmbrqx #1 Best Retirement Location - http://tinyurl.com/yxt63mmv #5 Best Cities to Raise Kids in the U.S. - http://tinyurl.com/y49luln5 #1 Safest Texas City with Population over 50,000 - http://tinyurl.com/y3e6fsxf #6 Best Place to Visit in U.S. - http://tinyurl.com/yxp8j2rx #16 Best Place to Live in America - http://tinyurl.com/y67ds3vp
