A Progressive Community
Though Mesquite has long been known as the official “Rodeo Capital of Texas,” Mesquite’s image has evolved into that of a progressive community known for its quality lifestyle, neighborhoods and schools.
Approximately 133,000 people reside in Mesquite. Continued economic growth marks Mesquite as a prosperous city, both for businesses and residents. The area’s proximity to the Dallas/Fort Worth region allows for easy access to major metropolitan amenities, and residents enjoy a comfortable, though still distinctly urban, family-oriented community.
An active and responsive government and chamber of commerce keep Mesquite developing at a steady pace, encouraging expansion, prompting improvement, and ensuring an even better community for the future.
