My husband and I are planning tomove to the Dallas area. He has an IT degeree and I just finished my BSN. We have two very active boys and would be looking for a good neighboorhood fro them.

What is a good family friendly/ affordable neighboorhood within aproximatly 30 min comute to Baylor?

Also how is the stability of your IT workforce, Tulsa has been rocky for the last several years?

i live in forney. it is about 20 miles east of downtown. if you will be at baylor downtown or or baylor garland it will be about 30 minutes for both.

i live in travis ranch. nice community, great amenties. it is close to rockwall and forney has all the necessities (walmart, lowes, grocery stores, etc.)

we like it because it is close back in to the city, but far enough out to give the small town feel. they city just built a 127 acre park that is totally awesome. it has soccer fields, baseball fields, tennis courts, splash parks, playgrounds, hike and bike trails, etc.

if you are looking under 200K i would look at travis ranch or chestnut meadows. if you are looking for 200-250, i would look at devonshire (www.devonshireliving.com)

good luck.

I moved from Tulsa like 15 years ago (and I know tons of people that did the same). None of us has gone back to Tulsa. We have stayed here or some moved to California. Many of us work in the IT/Telecom/Engineering industry and the availability of those jobs here is much better than T-Town. You guys will be fine down here.

I moved from Tulsa, and I believe that the IT sector is much stronger in Big D.

The two cities are very similar culturally, so there won't be any culture shock like their might be if you moved elsewhere.
