HAR tells me that subdivision is unfinsihed and full of vacant lots. Those types of places always become magnets for crime.

She told us that since Katrina, Spring is going Section 8 with Katrina refugees. She said that her parents were ready to sell their house, that if they had known what was happening to Spring,they would have never moved there. She described high crime, break-ins, and people on the streets after dark.

She recommended going somewhere else. After Googling the issue, and the trends in Houston in different areas, we decided her feelings were valid, and have decided on another area.
Spring is very large and there are parts I would not live in. However, there are very nice areas and the Champion area is one of the nicest large areas in Houston in my opinion. The three areas I like the best are The Woodlands, Kingwood and the Champion area.
