We have lived in this area for 10 years, we remember when it was just trees. I’m looking forward to more growth when it comes to retail and restaurants. I would love to see higher end retail, bars and cigar lounge. (Night life).

It's a growing community. The stores are nice and its very family oriented. You feel the love from your neighbors.
This community is a small suburban part of Houston, it has just about everything you need near by. There is some prejudice to a couple faiths in the area but nothing that causes major issues to the public. Decent community, better than most of those surrounding it.
