Same with higher density fans and suburb fans both exist and make the world go around, I fail to understand the ignoring of the legitimacy of the other viewpoint as some seem to.
It is absolutely a one-way street. Dallas County could be dropped into Wyoming and continue to thrive as a cultural and business center. Collin County, if dropped into Wyoming, would empty out in seconds... with the transplants heading, if not to SoCal, to Dallas County.

CoCo transplants simply like "safe" neighborhoods and low taxes while leeching off the big city. That's it in a nutshell. I don't blame individual families for doing it - it makes a lot of sense and I hope they're very happy and healthy in Collin County. But don't try to pretend like you're giving anything back, because you're not. You're leeches.

As a Dallas resident I think it's absolutely worth getting into. It's about time some people learned where their patrimony came from.

Wow - and I guess all the Fortune 500 Headquarters currently in (or coming in) Collin County are leeches too :-)

Absolutely. Dallas County supports all the undesirables they depend upon to clean their buildings at night and mow the grass on their campuses while they enjoy their tax breaks.

Leeches? That sounds like a recycled version of an idea that floated around Chicago in the 1960s. Suburban residents, piling onto commuter trains, or into their cars, working and drawing a paycheck in Chicago, and then spending their money and paying most taxes in the suburbs.

At least Chicago was an established big city with abundant home grown business and industry. What about Dallas? Yeah EDS moved to Plano. What else does CoCo "leech" from Dallas? By that I mean, what is being removed from Dallas, which Dallas has a right to claim as its own?

Where in Dallas would there be room for the CoCo employers, and all those employees? What about transplants working for transplanted companies? Plano leeched Toyota from Torrance, CA. However, the transplanted employees are not leeches for living near their new work location.

What's that about giving back? Did anyone say they were giving back? What would you expect them to give back, and why do they owe it?

Cultural what?

How do you know building cleaners live in Dallas County, not Collin or Denton? If they do live in Dallas County, do they really live in Dallas, or has Dallas priced out most of their building cleaner persons?

Remove coco from the DFW area and who gets Toyota? Not Dallas, maybe the DFW area, maybe not. Good schools matter to employers as much as the vibe or high density, etc do.

Safe sounds like a code word for something else when in quotes. Urban dwellers fail to open their mind to the view that many do not like high density city living.

Diversity thrives in some coco areas, open minds understand there are reasons other than " safe" ones that not all people share your urban worship religion.

I predict that when the development stops moving north of Dallas, Kaufman County will be the next Collin County. Forney's already already exploded in population around 10 years ago, and Crandall ISD is gaining students at a high rate. Sprawl will start there and move farther east, into Terrell and Kaufman, and from there who knows.
