As Forney continues to experience explosive growth in its business sector, families in search of that perfect coupling of small-town atmosphere and the amenities of the big city find that living in the Forney area means having the best of both worlds. In preparation for and response to the city's growth, area leaders persist in establishing procedures that will keep Forney as a favorite place to call home. For example, by constantly re-evaluating and modifying city building standards, from everything to lot size and square footage requirements, the city ensures that overall Forney property values remain uncompromised.
