Prosper, Texas – Why are so many people considering moving to Prosper, TX?
One reason is its proximity to Dallas now that the North Dallas Turnpike is open from downtown Dallas to Prosper…a 36-mile walk. And Prosper is now just 10 minutes from Frisco, 20 minutes from McKinney, 30 minutes from Denton, and 35 minutes from Dallas! A new prosperity awareness campaign to be launched in 2009 is called “All Roads Lead to Prosperity”. But proximity is only one of the reasons.
The Town of Prosper is an attractive town in the northern part of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. It is a place that is highly desirable to live, work and play. When residents are asked what they like about Prosper, it’s usually the town’s rural character with wide open spaces that brought them here in the first place. The country feel is also an extremely important quality of the city that residents want to see preserved and retained. The current population is about 7,000… only 2,500 five years ago! So Prosper has the country feel, but is only 10 minutes from all the shopping, dining, and entertainment you could want. Most residents commute to work in an urban environment but return home to the “country.”
Prosper is blessed with peace and serenity, and as our mayor says, “people wave at you when they drive by in their car or truck.” No traffic jams, honking or shooting. And in that sense, Prosper has a new, centrally located fire station with all the high-tech available. Your Police Department was recently expanded and is now ready for the population growth anticipated for the next decade. Another important reason people move to Prosper is the excellent school system… School District 3A, TEA “Recognized” District. Its four elementary schools are rated Exemplary. A new 21st century high school will open in the fall of 2009. Prosper High School’s new $96 million facility has a student capacity of 1,500 students. We don’t want to dismiss Friday night football as yet another reason to live in Prosper. The Prosper Eagles beat the Waco La Vega Pirates at Texas Stadium to win the 2008 Class 3A Regional II Division 9 State Finals!
Prosper boasts that Gentle Creek Golf Club was ranked 12th in Texas last year. Designed by DA Weibring, Gentle Creek Golf Club is absolutely beautiful, with a huge lake in the middle, rolling hills, trees, and wildlife. We have saved the best for last. Prosper has the most wonderful selection of custom homes in several different subdivisions. Many have 1 acre lots that are hard to find in the Metroplex. Some of the most exquisite places to live are Gentle Creek, Whitley Place, Whispering Farms, Saddle Creek, and Whispering Meadows. Some of the leading custom home builders include Dave R. Williams, Alford Homes, Darling Homes, and Highland Homes. For more articles on Homes of Prosper, visit Bill Remington’s Real Estate Articles.
