Smile Manor, TX

I moved to Manor from Austin in 2008. I absolutely love the place. It is very peaceful and friendly...

I have a special needs child who has received more help in Manor ISD than I could have dreamed... Apparently, the Manor schools had issues in the past, but my understanding is that there was a complete overhaul and they are now doing extremely well. Let me tell you I never had the level of help and support from any school my child previously attended in the Austin School District. They have been amazing.

I do wish the HEB and Walmart would finally get built in Manor.. I was told when I bought my house in Jan 2008 that they were on the way..... I am with you on renovating downtown Manor.. there are some amazing historical houses that would be a big draw if they were painted and fixed up.... A metro rail from Manor to downtown Austin would be a fantastic addition.

Default Coming to manor

Its been a while since anyone has posted on this thread. where you able to close on your home and move to manor after all? If so, how do you like it so far? I'm in the process of building and moving to manor myself. I'm noticing plenty of movement and some construction starting. Cvs pharmacy, mcdonlds and shadow glen golf course reopened. I can't wait, I hope my Neighbors are nice.

Just in case you also didn't know, Manor will begin construction on a Walmart in Oct. 2012. Also, Manor will also be getting an Auto Zone, CVS Pharmacy and Walgreens in the near future.

Technically its a pretty good location, except the schools.

Samsung jobs played any role in Manor development ?

Not sure about the "social scene" in Shadowglen. I don't really actually live in the city of Manor but more a few miles south of it in county. Manor just happens to be the closest "city" to my residence and after 5 years of traveling 12 miles to the closest grocery store I am looking forward to being able to save a little gas in the near future.
