This is one of the newer subdivision in East Plano. If this is ghetto for you then up your budget by a million and look into Preston Hollow.

If you want brand new homes in East Plano then look here.

Thanks for the help guys. I agree, the people who call east Plano "ghetto" and say Dallas traffic is "terrible" are being a bit dramatic. I currently live 3 blocks from several rather large gang neighborhoods here in Anaheim, CA. Last year, we had riots at city hall after the local police killed 6 gang members within a few days. Police in riot gear shooting rubber bullets and tear gas into an angry mob of a few hundred. I think I can handle east Plano I own a nice collection of guns, thankfully they will be perfectly legal there. CA just made some awful, anti gun rulings today. As for traffic, it took me right over an hour to go 14 miles today. There is traffic pretty much every hour of the day unless its like 2am-6am. So I am sure I can live with Dallas area traffic too.

I am having a discussion with this guy on another thread on the same topic. To him, anything less IS ghetto.

I just moved to the Dallas area and work from home as well. Research where you move for internet service. Where I moved the choices were extremely limited either DSL or Time Warner (this is in Allen). Other areas have FIOS, ATT, Time Warner etc.

I'd be interested to know what the OP considers "ghetto".

Anywhere with a high rate of violent crime, gang activity and a neighborhood you wouldnt dream of going without a gun on you. I have zero problems with older looking towns and cheap housing but I would like a nice, upscale area.

Report names Plano the third safest city in America | Plano Blog

Plano has been the third safest city in the USA, so I'm pretty sure that means all of Plano is safe. You don't get to be named #3 with "a high rate of violent crime, gang activity and a neighborhood you wouldnt dream of going without a gun on you."
