Resident Information

Thirty minutes east of Dallas on U.S. Highway 80, Forney may seem like just 1 more town on the way out of town - but to the tens of thousands who live in and around it, it's more: its Forney country.

This community is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values its people hold dear. Forney strives to balance its pioneering past with a forward-thinking vision of the future by:
  • Maintaining a vibrant family-centered lifestyle
  • Helping entrepreneurs reinvent its historic downtown
  • Continuing to invest in new parks, trails and roads
  • Attracting the amenities its growing population demands
Forney is known for its nationally recognized schools, attractive housing prices, and down-to-earth people. Those who call it home are independent, friendly, and caring - quick to rally around 1 of their own in need. Forney draws like-minded people to itself, and beckons those who've left to return. Forney is an American original - a city without limits.
