Yeah, and there is always SMU for the folks without the money or the grades.

Overall, THIS is a funny but little bit sad thread.

Everything from Hank Hill King of The Hill -- how to shape-up your place and correct your neighbors -- devolving down to OMIGOD the place has Demon (Re)Possession.

btw, those are not Demons, those are the Bankers and their Lawyers slapping down the Repos. Well, OK, you are correct. Bankers and their Lawyers are Demons. But I digress.

We did check for cloven hoof sign in the area, while shopping it, but it turned out be signs of local Goat Farmers. About the only firm sign we observed were folks speaking in tongues, falling down, drooling and handling snakes. Wait a second, those are the devout Christians. I get the two side confused at times.

As for the rest -- the area is just a little too far out beyond the area for saving grace within the overall economic collapse zones.

Things have been dumping and dying all the way out from the economic somewhat "safe-zones" of Plano/Allen/Frisco, and somewhere things had to die-off. Just the wrong side of the line in that regard.

There were some grand plans for 380 being a turn-off from the Great White Flight highway aka US-75/Central, but that Exodus has been suspended due to economic issues.

Rather than suburbia, the area is just reverting back to rural red-neckia.

Thumbs up update on princeton! june 2013

Princeton is growing exponentially! We moved here in March of 2012 and we have loved it ever since. We know all of our neighbors and since we've moved in they have built a brand new CVS, Family Dollar, performant fitness, Jack in the Box and they continue to build! We live in the Princeton Meadows Community, and we have always had our HOA ever since we moved in last year. Our community is only one in Princeton that actually has a swimming pool (because of our HOA) and we love it. DR Horton is building 160 new homes in our neighborhood! In addition to that, our neighbor community, Forest Grove is building a future park, and we are having a future elementary school built in our neighborhood for the 2015-2016 school year. We were worried about moving "out here" at first, but luckily our realtor mentioned that 15-20 years ago nobody wanted to move to McKinney, because it was 'so far from Dallas.' Sometimes you have to act on faith! The people who moved to Princeton over the past 8 years have probably grown weary of waiting on these future promises. We were really blessed to come at the end of the waiting period. We are a young family, and there are lots of other young adults and families and friends in Princeton who are proud to live here. In Farmersville (city 7 miles east) they are building a future Collin County Community College. This area is expanding, and its nice that our property is already increasing in value. We love the tranquility and being able to see the stars at night, yet live in a suburbia neighborhood. The city is growing, and I see nothing but excellence coming from Princeton. We have 2 sets of friends who are ready to invest as well! Brand new beautiful houses, friendly neighbors, and a wonderful community. Love it! The city is making new parks and biking trails, and an investment firm just purchased 185 acres for development. Pros definitely outweigh any minor cons!

So is having the highest sex offender to resident rate in the metroplex a "minor" con or a major one, in your opinion?? Princeton is and will be known as the biggest "cluster" of sex offenders in North Texas - as of this month, there are 50 registered sex offenders in Princeton (1 for every 130 residents). There are another 32 sex offenders in Farmersville next door. These sickos LOVE to live near each other once they get out of jail.

39 of the 50 have records involving sexual assault with children, possession of child porn or engaging children in child porn, and indecency with children. These are SICK, SICK people and guilty of the worst kind of sex offender crimes (not lesser offenses like public exposure around adults).

No amount of new CVS stores or new fast food chains can cover up this MAJOR flaw of Princeton. Sorry.

I've always wondered why that cluster was there....is it the only town that doesn't prohibit them or something like that?

And the traffic that just pokes along on 380 is ridiculous. I used to like to use 380 to cut through to I-30 in Greenville, but that bottleneck makes it hardly worth the time.

let's talk priorities, statistically speaking there are 1 (sex offender)/ 130 residents. Yes, that is accurate and true according to [url=http://www.sheriffalerts.com/tx/collin]Collin County Sheriff's Office OffenderWatch® sex offender management, mapping and email alert program[/url]. However I will have to disagree with you on it being a major issue considering most of the sex offenders live out in the country roads and there's only 3 within a 2 mile radius of my neighborhood. Now, let's crunch some numbers, and put things into perspective for people to be able to objectively look at the situation at hand. I came from a very wealthy family in Plano Texas with the zip code of 75025 and there were nine sex offenders living within a two mile radius of our $300, 000.00 home. I also lived in Allen Texas (area code 75002) and there were 30 sex offenders within a 2 mile radius of our home. Clearly I didn't come on city-data.com to get into fights about sex offenders. Everyone knows the dangers, and you should always watch out for your children and your neighbors children and keep a high alert for anybody suspicious. Obviously the reason why it looks like Princeton has such a high number of sex offenders is because Princeton's population is only 6862 people. If you divide 6, 862/50=130. Allen texas has a population of a whopping 84, 913 with 1/1,685 people being a sex offender. This lovely ratio APPEARS that allen is far more safe than princeton. But when you actually scope out the offenders within a 2 mile radius the facts change. It's all about your personal location location location! and clearly there's going to be times when your children grow up and sex offenders can move around. However, IF you teach them about safety, moral values and life skills, then they will be just fine have a little faith my friends. Remember: when I lived in Plano I was surrounded by 9 sex offenders within a 2 mile radius. when I lived in Allen, i was surrounded by 30 sex offenders within a 2 mile radius and now I live in Princeton and I only have 3 sex offenders within a 2 mile radius. Now please for crying out loud put your priorities in order. I am still proud to live here, and I dont want some negative person on a power trip trying to throw down Princeton when they don't put things into perspective properly

So a new person comes along and posts their opinion, like we all do, only to be greeted with remarks that can best be described as unwelcoming. Is this the way we treat newcomers to this forum? I've noticed similar condescending remarks on other threads recently, but some of the previous posts here went overboard. I couldn't just sit back and not say anything.

Welcome to the forum, kjstarzyk.
