My mom's church is there so I've been in and out of Lake Dallas for a decade and a half and it is not nice. I can't imagine that a new development that is "nice" is going to remain so for very long.

They have no development standards, and like a PP said rely on beer/wine stores for revenue. There's no real places to shop, so you either need to head north on 35 to Denton or down 35 (across the lake bridge) to Lewisville.

The tax rate for the City is .71 which is really high for the services provided. And the tax rate for the school district is 1.65 which is also high for the quality of district.

Just because someone doesn't make a lot of money and lives in a trailer home doesn't make them bad people or the areas of town where they live bad parts. Nope, I consider people making just a little amount of money as progressive and way ahead of their time as this nation is going to hell in a hand basket while living in a trailer home just makes good, practical sense in this age when trillions upon trillions of dollars are being counterfeited.
Figure if a person has no money in the bank and a low paying job that they don't have to worry about a person stealing their identity. When they do lose their minimum wage job, there is always a lot of jobs like that out there to choose from.
So, go ahead and move into a trailer home out in that shabby part north of Lake Dallas. Besides, the worst hoodlum kids are those from the middle and upper middle class neighborhoods.

Lake Dallas is a nice community HOWEVER distance to downtown Dallas unless you take DART... not familiar with all your professional obligations and personal interests could be other communities closer to work location.
