Midlothian is ideally located in northwest Ellis County, just minutes from Dallas, Fort Worth, and DFW International Airport. The city’s residents enjoy the small-town atmosphere; yet have all the amenities of the DFW Metroplex readily available just minutes away. Midlothian has become a community of choice for both businesses and families because of its ideal location, first-rate transportation corridors, progressive business attitude, and hometown feeling. Midlothian has a low crime rate, excellent schools, and friendly neighborhoods. The city’s enhanced quality of place provides options, not just for the current residents, but for future residents as well.
With a population of nearly 27,000, Midlothian is planning for the future. Envision 2025, the city’s new Comprehensive Plan, sets the foundation for long term growth and development while preserving our small-town heritage. Envision 2025 will act as a guide to officials, city staff, and the investment community as they manage Midlothian’s economic, physical, and social development. The planning within the comprehensive plan includes both the city of Midlothian’s current incorporated city limits and the area within its extra-territorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Taken together, the total area covers approximately 81 square miles.
Maintaining the city’s small-town charm, while accommodating the projected growth, will be a significant challenge for the city’s leaders, but with the guidance of EnVISION 2025, they have the framework of goals and objectives in place to achieve the kind of community desired by the citizens of Midlothian. The Comprehensive Plan will be put into action on an incremental basis through zoning, development regulations, subdivision rules and capital improvement programs. As the city continues to grow with the ongoing construction of new residential, retail, commercial, and industrial development, we will still be able to maintain our rich history and unique character. Midlothian is DFW’s Southern Star, and EnVISION 2025 will only make the city shine brighter - not only for industry and business, but also for employees and their families.
