Melissa is located seven miles northeast of McKinney just off State Highway 75, in north-central Collin County. From this community came many individuals and families who have been prominent in the business and professional life of Collin County.
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.”
The City will post updates regarding any City of Melissa projects that may impact traffic and or mobility throughout the city online here as well as under the City News Center and also share via our official City communication channels.
With booming populations, prolonged droughts, and increased demand on a limited supply of water, it is more important than ever for each of us to use water wisely and efficiently to make sure our supplies last.
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.
