Mayor's Message

Welcome to the City of Fate!  

It is amazing to think back when my wife Michele and I moved to Fate with our young family over 18 years ago, the City’s population was about 600.  Fast forward to 2019 and we now have nearly 17,000 neighbors!  Yes, a lot has changed in that time, and many changes are yet to come, but one thing that has remained constant over the years is the incredible people who call Fate home.

Whether you’ve lived here for a long time or just moved here recently, I am grateful you have chosen to be part of this community.  With over one-thousand people moving to Texas daily, we are not surprised that Fate is expected to grow by over one-thousand people annually. At build out, Fate will have a population of approximately 50,000.  Consider the collective potential we have and the possibilities we can create together!

Growing at such a rapid pace is both exciting and challenging and so we have taken a proactive approach in planning for the future.  With the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan, (a planning document that guides our future growth), and the Unified Development Ordinances, (the rules that future development abides by), we feel confident in our ability to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life our residents now enjoy.

Future plans include continued improvements to our existing infrastructure (especially roads); enhancements to our existing parks and the development of a new park south of I30; and we are committed to growing responsibly and attracting quality development throughout our City, including the I-30 corridor and Downtown areas.  We want to keep Fate a great place to Live, Work and Play.

My sincere hope is that you will get to know your neighbors, seek out volunteer opportunities, and participate with us as we make important decisions for our community that will affect many generations to come. 

It is my pleasure to serve as Mayor of the City of Fate alongside an incredible Council.  We have much to look forward to!

Mayor Joe Burger
