A suburb of Dallas, it breifly flashed into national news-worthiness when blacktop heroin found its way there in the late 90's, leading to a slew of deaths. It can be divided into 2 regions

A. West: The newer part, it also has a higher per capita income(on the order of $100,000-$120,000). Its schools are still a hotbed of drug activity due to the high preponderance of bored, rich kids, but heroin has fallen out of favor.

B. East: Considered by most Plano-ites, to be the "ghetto" section of Plano, the vast majority is still upper-middle class. It however lacks the number of shopping malls/ multiplexes/ etc. that have arose in the west side during the building boom that hit the DFW area in the 90's.
In Plano there are two types of students; bored, rich junkies and GPA-whoring asians

Plano, Texas:

A city that is sometimes thought of as "all of America summarized into one city." In this city, there are at least 20 people from each region of the planet. The crime rate in Plano is usually minimal, however drug abuse occured often in the 90's. In the early 90's and late 80's Plano was a large town with few shopping centers and malls, until a building boom in the mid-90's occured.

Plano is often divided by young citizens, the West side and the East (also known as downtown Plano, or more crudely, the Ghetto- it is not very poor, however it isn't as new.) The West Side has more money per capita than the East side. East Planoites (usually of teenager age) describe West Planoites as snobby, rich bitches, spoiled, bored, and potheads. People from outside of Plano say such things about Plano, usually because they don't have anything better to do or they used to live there and got treated poorly.

Plano is also often known as unique or diverse. Most of the defintions of Plano on Urban Dictionary are hateful and poorly written, or completely opinionized. The best resource for info on Plano, historically and presently, is Wikipedia.
I live in Plano, and go to school at Plano West. A lot of people from East Plano and outside of Plano say cruel things to me or about me because of where I live; but their stereotypes are based off of people under the age of 18- I believe that wherever you go in America teenagers will be immature, inconsiderate, and/or rude, and that people who judge a city off of it's children are immature, too.

A little-known city in Texas that is close to Dallas. It is the 9th-largest city in Texas and the 70th-largest in the United States. It is unique in that it is home to the headquarters of many major corporations including JCPenney, Frito-Lay, Cinemark, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Rent-A-Center, and Pizza Hut.

A city in the DFW Area, right outside of Dallas. The rumors of Plano being a rich city full of BMW's and white people living in big ass mansions. Their wrong. Plano is divided in three parts. East, Central, and east.

East: The Ghetto side of Plano. West stereotypes them as gang bangers who smoke drugs in front of the police who does no shit about it. Not so true. They might live in the ghetto but it doesn't mean that that happens since many people have graduated and gone to college becoming doctors and shit.

West: The modern side of Plano. East stereotypes them as snobby rich asswholes that smoke shit in the bathrooms and have mansions with 15 BMW's and ferraris in their houses. Even though the Willow Bend has mansions and Shepton and Plano West Senior High School are right in front of it. Doesn't mean its like that. There are many lower class people in plano, not because the go to Shepton, Jasper, and Plano West, means that they are automatically rich. I speak from experience.

Central: Central Plano is where Plano Senior is at. (Btw good job at woopin our ass yesterday at the football game... 19-0...) (11/1/2012) They are like the only normal people in plano. With mixture of East and West in it. Plano Senior is just stuck in between the shitty ass fights with Plano West and Plano East.
Plano West: We are playing against those gang bangers of Plano East... Hah.. They can't do anything but smoke and drop out of school.

Plano East: We are playing against those rich smartass Plano West... Trying to act like they have all that shit...

Plano Senior: Wtf is with those fucking assholes... we are the same fuckin city...

A city close to Dallas. Unfortunately the stereotypes are pretty true. West was the richer side of town; rich kids all fucked off on some shit living in nice ass houses. Everyone was on prescription drugs. The vibe I felt from west plano people: super sexually weird, sort of reminded me of serial killers. There was a nigga that liked to drug girls at parties and rape them. I knew a girl , who fell victim to the therapy of prescription drugs and believed that since she didn’t have her adderrall, it was ok to do meth. East Plano- full of wanna be drug dealers and kids who liked to party. middle class, some upper. Sadly two of the guys I knew couldn’t see life any other way. One of them was a smart guy but he kept using drugs and couldn’t stay out of jail. He’s out now, dating a stripper on acid. The other is a runaway meth dealer who went from motel livin n pimpin to rottin and hidin away in storage units in the dallas area (he thought it was cool to get the Plano emblem tattooed on his face if that tells you anything). Then of course I do know people that actually grew the fuck up and stayed away from the “im bored and wanna live a drug fueled life that will do me no good”.
And I guess similar stories happen all around the world but this was my personal experience with Plano, Tx.

And lastly, yes, in the 90’s, Plano was known for the heroin deaths.

a city off of Dallas with a well known school district where they give you so much homework and other school stuff that it's like a concentration camp. it can be separated into 3 areas: West, Central, and East. the stereotypic west planoite is a rich snobby person when in real life they are just a bunch of druggies and alcoholics who have rich or upper middle class parents. on the east side the stereotypic planoite is a gang banger when they're just the lower middle class and down. in the central area they are just the normal people who are in the middle class. so basically how it works is the east kids don't like the west kids because they think they're all rich and the west kids don't like the east kids cause they think they're all gang bangers that are going to end up killing them and the central kids are just kinda stuck in the middle of the fight.
i have to live in plano.

A medium-sized community (about 250,000 people) in the northeastern sector of the DFW metroplex. Alot of shit is said about it from people who don't even live here. First of all, let me begin by saying that really the only "rich" part of Plano is the area in between George Bush Tollway, Dallas North tollway, Windhaven Parkway, and Preston Road, which only makes up for about 1/6 of the city as a whole. However, once you pass Coit road going west, you will definitely notice a change in atmosphere. Even then it's not rich, if you want to see rich go to Beverly Hills. And there are actually many low-income government housing projects in the Plano West attendance zone. Plano is also known for its abundance of movie theatres, such as the Cinemark Legacy, Tinseltown, the Angelika, the Movies 10 dollar theatre (YES! a DOLLAR THEATRE in PLANO!!! AREN'T YOU SHOCKED????) and the Studio Movie Grill. I really can't think of a place I'd rather live, but maybe because I've lived here about 95% of my life
