It is one of the fastest growing areas in Tarrant co--used to be slow, country-type small town with mainly people who wanted some space and privacy--raised some cows or a horse or two--maybe had mobile home on 5 acres or fairly small house...but not real big subdivisions and would be real surprised if there were big apartment complexes either---probably no Section 8 housing... but probably had mix of anglos, blacks, and Hispanics...probably most people were under 40000 a year income...

land around there was cheap but now that top part of Tarrant co is built out and expensive, and S. Fort Worth, Mansfield and Burleson are growing...builders have moved on to Crowley...

some roll to terrain---there are some places w/trees although a lot of it has been pasture so they were cut before the developers found it--school district used to be 3 A--meaning small but now think they are at least 4A district (number of students in high schools) if not 5...

no big golf courses there--not many big parks that I can remember hearing about---have some pretty good student athletes in publc schools but not state championship teams as of yet

Barnett Shale runs through there so gas drilling is going to happen

Crowley now has two high schools (one 5A and one 4A) with 3rd school to be built in next 3 years. In 1995 there were 9 campuses in the district - 20th to be completed 2007; Career and Technology Center in the works for next 3 years as well as new Natatorium. Section 8 homes on south end of district but most of these students will likely go to new high school in 2 to 3 years. CISD is 54 sq. miles area with many of the new homes going in at north end of district. Population is approx. 7500 people but school receives population growth from Fort Worth addresses as well.

NCHS State Champions in football and CHS State Champs in boys' basketball and back-2-back State Champs in softball. Track and soccer (boys and girls) very competitive in playoffs at both high schools; athletes from both high schools have gone to major, midmajor, and small colleges on scholarship with a few going on to play pro. One of the most recent being Keith Langford. Drill teams at both campuses are extremely competitive and bring championship honors on multiple levels; debate teams and UIL academics extremely competitive with state championships in numerous areas. NCHS has Key Club ranked 9th in nation of 312 schools. CHS was ranked #4 in Tx HS in the last 5 years.

Local stores include Kroger with strip shopping center, Albertson's with strip shopping center, Walgreen's, CVS, Chase Bank, Subway, Quiklube, Cousin's Bar-B-Que, and others franchise and local businesses too many to name here.

Highways are now 4 lane and new housing edition in the city limits are abundant. Churches are getting bigger and some are new. New fire station and other local governmental agencies building soon.

Hope this gives more updated info for you.

Crowley is definitely growing...I lived there briefly in 99 before moving to the mid-cities area. In that time, it has changed quite a bit. Builders are offering nice discounts and incentives on inventory homes, be careful of what school is being attended. That statement could be viewed as a red flag and probably should be as the ISD has detoriorated in the last few years--it was sought after as recent as 3 years ago. There is a post about Crowley you can check out.
