Farmers Branch, officially the City of Farmers Branch, is a city in Dallas County, Texas, United States. It is an inner-ring suburb of Dallas and is part of the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The population was 28,616 at the 2010 census.[7]

Known as a "City in a Park" for its 28 parks in only 12 square miles, Farmers Branch is a small community that is in close proximity to Dallas and has a business community that accounts for 80% of the City's tax base, allowing residents to have one of the lower city tax rates in Dallas County while having dedicated city services and public safety.[citation needed]

The city received media attention due to 2006 anti-illegal immigration measures and a law making English the city's official language. These measures were struck down by courts and/or repealed. In 2017 the community elected the City's first millennial mayor, Robert C. Dye. Under the Mayor and Council's leadership, the city has prioritized creating a more ethnically diverse community focused on leadership in education, sustainability, innovative commercial development, and smart city design.[citation needed]
