Mayor's Message

Welcome to the City of Fate!

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.

Mayor Lorne Megyesi
Growing at such a rapid pace is both exciting and challenging.  The City of Fate Council recently approved a $6.8-million-dollar reinvestment on road repairs and construction for this fiscal year.

Several projects included are the reconstruction of the railroad crossing at Riding Club Road, Ben Payne Road and at the FM 551/HWY 66 intersection.

Rochelle Road will receive crack seal to maintain the previously improved road. Blackland road will have areas of replacement, asphalt reconstruction, crack seal as well as some drainage work. Greenbriar Road construction will include crack seal and surface repair. Sections of North Ben Payne Road are planned to be repaired prior to the four-lane concrete section planned in the next one to two years. Finally, Northview and Carrington Drive construction includes portions of concrete panel replacement.

Also included is a redevelopment for the Fate Downtown area blocks (FM 551 to Brown and Brown Ave. to Barnes Ave.) to include roadwork and electric and sewer lines.

Fate City Council has developed a downtown plan to create quality vertical mixed use developments to make a walkable gathering place for residents to live, work and play that is also financially productive economic development.

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.
