The City of Fate is one of the fastest-growing cities in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The accelerated growth of new single-family homes in Fate can be attributed to the highly amenitized master-planned communities of Chamberlain Crossing, Williamsburg, and Woodcreek. With over a thousand people moving to Texas daily, we are not surprised that Fate is expected to grow by over one-thousand people annually. It is amazing to think that in the year 2000 the population in Fate was about 600. At build out, Fate will have a population of approximately 50,000.
In preparation for this growth, our community has taken a proactive approach in planning for our future. With the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan, (a planning document that guides our future growth), and the recent adoption and implementation of the new Unified Development Ordinances, (the rules that future development abides by), we feel confident in our ability to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life our residents now enjoy. We are committed to growing responsibly and attracting quality development along the I-30 corridor.
Growing at such a rapid pace is both exciting and challenging. With new growth comes the need for costly new infrastructure. Recent infrastructure additions include a one-million gallon elevated storage tank and the expansion of the sewer treatment plant. In February of this year, we consolidated three buildings in our downtown and moved staff to the new City Hall; a facility that will provide space for future growth and better serve our residents now and in the future.
It is my pleasure to serve as Mayor of the City of Fate, we have much to look forward to and I am proud to call Fate my home.
