Robinson, Texas

3 CIVIL AND MUNICIPAL VOLUME 3, ISSUE 3 ROBINSON, TEXAS W ith a population of 12,00 residents, the City of Robinson, Texas is one of McLennan County’s fastest growing communities. Strategically located on U.S. Route 77, it’s only six miles south of Waco, 90 miles south of Austin, and 90 miles north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Robinson is the ideal place to raise a family, as it has access to the amenities of those larger cities but with the added benefits of less traffic and lower living costs. It’s a wholesome city where residents are more than happy to encourage a positive community spirit. “We’re small with a calm lifestyle, but we still have a bit of everything from big pieces of land with horses to smaller residential homes,” shares Craig Lemin, Robinson’s City Manager. “When I first moved here someone told me, ‘When you’re in the big metropolitan areas, the focus is on business advantages, but out here, the focus is on connecting with others’. Business is important, but people are still interested in each other. It’s not all about strategy; I think that’s a real positive, it allows us to have a strong sense of community. Many of our residents have lived here from the day they were born. Same with N O W I S T H E T I M E F O R C H A N G E
