One reason is its proximity to Dallas now that the Dallas North Toll road is open from downtown Dallas to Prosper…a 36 mile trek. And, Prosper is now only 10 minutes to Frisco, 20 minutes to McKinney, and 30 minutes to Denton and 35 minutes to Dallas! A new Prosper Awareness campaign to be launched in 2009 is named “All Roads Lead to Prosper”. But proximity is only one reason.
The Town of Prosper is an attractive town in the northern part of Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. It is a place that is very desirable to live, work and play. When residents are asked what it is that they like about Prosper, it is usually the rural character of the Town with ample open space that brought them here in the first place. The country feel is also an extremely important quality of the Town that residents wish to see retained and preserved. The current population is about 7000…only 2500 five years ago! So, Prosper has the country feel but is only 10 minutes away from all the shopping, restaurants and entertainment you could ask for. Most residents commute to work in an urban setting but come home to the “country”.
Prosper is blessed with peace and serenity and as our mayor says “people wave to you as they pass in their car or pick-up.” No traffic jams, honking horns or drive by shootings. And, on that note, Prosper boasts a brand new Fire House centrally located with all the high technology available. Its Police Department recently expanded and is now ready for the population growth predicted for the next decade. Another important reason people are moving to Prosper is the outstanding school system…3A School District, A TEA “Recognized” District. Its four elementary schools are all rated Exemplary. A new 21st century high school will open in the fall of 2009. The $96 million new Prosper High School facility has a student capacity of 1500 students. We do not want to leave out Friday night football as another reason to live in Prosper. The Prosper Eagles beat the Waco La Vega Pirates at the Texas Stadium to win the 2008 Class 3A Regional II Division 9 state finals!
Prosper boasts Gentle Creek Golf Club ranked 12th in Texas last year. Designed by D.A. Weibring Gentle Creek Golf Club is absolutely beautiful with a huge lake in the middle, rolling hills, trees and wild life. We have left the best for last. Prosper has the most wonderful selection of custom homes in several different subdivisions. Many have 1 acre lots which 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 top custom home builders are Dave R. Williams, Alford Homes, Darling Homes and Highland Homes. For more articles on Homes of Prosper please visit Bill Remington Real Estate Articles.
