Leander lies on the northeast edge of Texas' Hill Country, roughly ten miles due west of Interstate 35 on U.S. 183, just north of Austin TX. Since 2000, the community has grown from 7,600 residents to more than 30,000 in 2010. This makes Leander the 37th fastest growing City in the United States (US Census Bureau, 2009).
Affordability and quality schools have been the historical drivers for the community's growth. Single-family residential homes run the gamut from first-time to executive styled living. The Leander Independent School District's (LISD) 37 campuses provide a varied curriculum. This gives more than 30,000 students a great start to their future.
Over the past decade the City has committed itself to knowing that change is inevitable, so it matters what you do with it. The civic and business leadership collaborated on the community's future. Leander's two award-winning land planning initiatives have provided a framework for sustainable development. We will build a community that lives, works and plays together.
Leander invites residents and visitors to build a sense of place. Thank you for visiting the City of Leander web page.
