New Residents Guide

I want to thank you for considering Mesquite as your new home. 

Mesquite’s accomplishments, big and small, have always been driven by the people who call it home. The passion Mesquite’s residents share for its betterment and ultimate success are why Mesquite can boast of generations of Texas legacy. The City’s progressive vision is one that is cultivated by its civic and community leaders and by its everyday citizens. I am truly proud of the quality of Mesquite’s business, education and entertainment options as well as the quality of life the citizens enjoy. This faith-based community is full of many different denominations and houses of worship. Mesquite Independent School District is a leading district in the North Texas Region. Mesquite's unique offering of parks and schools within walking distance of almost every home and business make it ideal for families who value its small-town feel and great outdoor amenities. With a crime rate significantly lower than both the state and national averages, Mesquite is considerably safer and more affordable for its residents than other Metroplex communities. 

This city has an abundance of heart and passion. With affection and commitment to the city I call home, our citizens, business owners and community leaders are a part of a diverse and rich community fabric that is woven from the Mesquite’s time-honored traditions. 

Below you will find a list of resources that are helpful to residents. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office. 

Enjoy Mesquite, known for its Real. Texas. Flavor.
