I've lived in Prosper for 14 years, and love the town! Proximity to the Dallas metroplex is a major plus, and even with rapid growth, the small town vibe still remains.
Prosper is a rapidly growing city that has expanded immensely within the past decade. There are new shopping centers popping up all over the place, and it is quickly transforming into a major suburb within the Dallas metroplex area. With the change, there has been a slight amount of overcrowding within the schools (my only complaint about the town, really), but the school district is working to open more schools and fix that issue.
