The City of Melissa offers a lifestyle and atmosphere of small-town living, but with big-city amenities only minutes away. Located just north of the immediate Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex on the U.S. 75 corridor, we are less than 10 minutes north of McKinney and 30 minutes south of Sherman. While remembering and honoring our past, embracing small-town charm and sensibilities, we have positioned ourselves for quality and managed growth in the coming years. As a result, some of the area's finest home builders and developers have settled here. Builders and buyers alike see the potential and appreciate the forward-looking vision of our City leaders to, "Leverage our community spirit, our passion for service and our beauty to grow a unique community that welcomes your future with us."
Thank you for choosing Melissa as your new home! It is our privilege to welcome newcomers on a daily basis. This page was developed for your convenience and we hope it will answer many questions about your new city and the community you have chosen to call home.
