We are considering a move there this summer.
What should I know before taking the leap?

Just some questions off the top of my head:

1. commute to/from Uptown at typical rush-hour
2. is the pool a separate fee or is it a mandatory HOA fee
3. when will houses be ready in the section across the road?
4. is the elementary school across from Lawson already approved? Time table guess-timate?
5. how is cell reception?
6. any particular annoyances?-- for example, right now I live near Mtn Island Lake, airplanes fly over head regularly- at times one will come low and be noisy. Industrial plants, over head tension lines, etc.
7. do the neighborhood trails connect with other neighborhoods?
8. does everyone go across the state line for gas, if so, where is the nearest (or easiest station to access)
9. Other than groceries- where is the nearest shopping for clothes, shoes, Target, etc.
10. fun things in the area- festivals, parks, events

just any helpful info and tips would be great. I have 2 girls, rising 6th and 4th that will need to find a group of friends too.
