Hello,

I would like to get some idea / perspective on Roanoke,TX as a city to live in a raise a family. I drove down that area the other day and found some new development coming up - Brarywick, Chadwick, etc.

Does anyone have any comments about Roanoke or the city in and around it - Trophy Club, Northlake, etc.

Please advise.
Thx

It is a growing area. New high school in Trophy Club is very nice. Downtown Roanoke has some nice Restaurants for such a small town (brix, Twisted Root). Traffic can get kind of bad around rush hour at 114/377 area and very bad when there is an event at TMS. Easy drive to Dfw or Alliance, Southlake shopping + restaurants are practically next door.

My family and I live in Roanoke are are very happy here. The city seems to be very smart about growth and there is a decent commercial base.
There are also good amenities for a city this size, a pool, library and lots of parks. Taxes are the lowest in the area. There are an amazing amount of restaurants for a city this size (non or local chain restaurants). The school district is good and I think it will continue to improve(it has in the 3 years we have been here). Be warned that the city boundaries around here are strange-in fact Chadwick Farms is in the city of Ft Worth, not Roanoke. Your taxes will be much higher there and Ft Worth does not really provide any amenities to its far north residents.

Trophy Club is very nice, but at this time is mostly residential. There are plans for additional development, but I don't know what kind of timeline there is. Both Roanoke and Trophy Club are in the Northwest ISD.

I don't really know too much about Northlake.
