That's not true. There are plenty of nice communities around, but if you're looking for brand new or nearly new in south Katy, Cinco stands out. Seven Meadows and Grand Lakes are also really nice. Anyway if my reaction is typical of a Cinco homeowner, what does that say about Cinco?

We just bought in Cross Creek Ranch. We looked at Cinco. They were noth on our short list. Both areas are very nice. Both are master planned communities. Because CCR is in the early phase of its establishment you can get more for your money. More square footage in the house as well and in your lot. The developer is sparing no expense in making the environment every bit as nice as Cinco.

Congrats on buying in Cross Creek! Are you building? We are, and will hopefully be out there by this summer. I do agree that the developer seems to be sparing no expense.

Hello all once again,

I'll be very interested to see how the school zoning goes once CCR starts filling out. I have three daughters under 4 and education is at the very top of my list when considering where to buy.

I'm glad to see some favorable views of this community. I think that it will remain on my short list. I will just have to wait and see it for myself when I get a chance.

Steve

Cross Creek is zoned for the new school year (Aug/Sept 09) to the new elementary school (#32) off of Fry Rd in Cinco Ranch. Jr High students are zoned to Wood Creek a few miles north of the development off of FM 1463 and High School students are zoned to Seven Lakes. I am told that KISD and the developer are currently working on a site for a new elementary school with in Cross Creek.

I saw on the "Land Plan" of the Cross Creek website that a plot of land has been labled "Future Jr. and Sr. High School" in the Katy ISD. I didn't see anything on the Katy ISD website though.

I remember when Cinco was really starting to get built up, and I was like, there are homes past Mason Rd??!? That's the sticks! Who would live out there?!? Then when Cinco jumped 99 I drove out there, and it was just nuttin' but prairie as far as the eye could see...no Target, no La Centerra, no high school...hard to believe!

That is so true, about 12 years ago we lived in the northwest and we were going to build a home, the plan we picked was only spec'd in Cinco. The grand parkway had nothing around it, it seemed endless going to look at the house.

I will say that is the attraction to Cross Creek for us, it may be a while before retail is built up all around it.

What is Cross Creek's Tax rate? I've heard several people say that CCR residents pay KISD taxes in addition to LCISD taxes (being in Fulshear) just so they can be zoned to KISD schools.

I don't think that would be a good idea... taxes in TX are high enough without paying double. And while KISD is good, it is not perfect for everyone, everytime. What a fit people would pitch if they had troubles with KISD while knowingly paying double school taxes.
