In 1980, Coppell was just a quiet little town of 3,826. Now, at more than 40,000 residents and growing, it’s continues to be a desirable place to live while also maintaining its small- town identity.
Coppell is bordered by and offers easy access to I-635, I-35 and Highway 121. To the southeast is Las Colinas and one of the fastest suburban commuter routes to down- town Dallas. To the south is Valley Ranch with the Dallas Cowboys’ and Dallas Stars’ training facilities.
The many parks, nearby lakes, quiet tree- lined streets and friendly attitude among the residents are just a few of the reasons for Coppell’s continuing development. Residents here find these North Texas woods with luxury homes, manicured yards, and rows of trees a good place to raise a family. Students living in Coppell attend school in Coppell Independent School District, Carrollton/Farmers Branch Independent School District or Lewisville School District.
City leaders saw the growth potential years ago. Rather than succumb to the temptation of overbuilding, they worked out a plan for the future and laid the groundwork for a progressive community that stresses quality of life. As a result, one-third of the city was set aside for residential development and, with a nod to the need for a commercial tax base, another third was set aside for commercial use, which is experiencing a flood of corporate relocations. The final third was set aside for parks, jogging trails, playgrounds and the Riverchase golf course.
