Denton: 10th Fastest Growing City in America

Well, Denton cracked the top 10 once again as one of the nation’s fastest growing cities… The U.S. Census Bureau released its report today showing Denton among 3 other Texas cities in the top 10. Granted, we’re down from #9 last year- but having 5,000 new people move here in just the past year ain’t too shabby…
