Since the 2020 U.S. Census, our population has experienced a large growth rate that continues to escalate. 

As one of the cities in the fastest-growing county in Texas, Princeton has opened opportunities for retail and commercial growth. 

The City has become a popular target for planned residential development in the eastern part of Collin County.

The City of Princeton is a "Home Rule" municipality. The City prepares a budget based on a fiscal year starting on October 1st and ending on September 30th each year. 

Princeton operates under a City Council/City Manager form of government and provides traditional municipal and public enterprise services.
