In 1872, the completion of the Houston and Central Texas Railway helped the city to grow, and it was incorporated in 187. At first, the population of Plano grew slowly,n reaching 1,304 in 1900, and rising to 3,695 in 1960. By 1970, Plano began to feel some of the boom its neighbors had experienced after World War II. A series of public works projects and a change in taxes that removed the farming community from the town helped increase the overall population. Sewers,n schools and street development kept pace with this massive increase, largely because of Plano's flat topography, grid layout and planning initiatives.The city's population was 269,776 at the 2010 census, making it the ninth most populous city in the state of Texas and the 70th most populous in the United States.[4] The city is an affluent hub forn many corporate headquarters, such as Cinemark Theatres,Dell Services, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Ericsson, Frito-Lay, HP Enterprise Services, J. C. Penney, and Pizza Hut.
