I wouldn't say they have nothing at all. I do know that you drop me anywhere in Corsicana and I'd think I was in South Dallas.

Next town in line to become gobbled up by suburbia: Brookshire. It's already happening to Fulshear.
Hockley and Waller's years are probably numbered too.

Then Sealy. Brookshire is already drowning in suburbia to an extent.

Eh, not really. I made the drive down I-10 from San Antonio to Houston as recently as last April, and though the development is definitely getting very close, even visible from the town, it will most likely be at least another 5 years before Brookshire can be considered "suburban". Probably more like 10 years.

And Sealy? Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. I don't even know if the sprawl will ever make it out that far. If it ever does, then it's waaaay off in the future. Probably not in my lifetime.

If anything, Greater Houston will most likely focus more on developing Southward into Brazoria county. Pearland is already over 100K, and they're building even further South than that. There's more room to develop down that way. The North and West sides are already built way out, and nobody wants to live East... so going South is the only logical choice.

Mansfield is getting bigger each year due to new housing and thriving population. Areas south of I20 and between 35W and US67 are booming. In a matter of time, Ellis and Johnson County will have a huge population similar to Collin County. People might avoid areas along 35E, 45, and US175 because that land is used for agriculture and being "too dirty".

Ellis County only has grown by 5,500 in the last 3 years.

Johnson County has only grown by 3,400 in the last 3 years.

Not actually booming.

I guess my sarcasm wasn't strong. LOL. But Brookshire is getting something, especially the extreme eastern side near Rooms to Go.

TBH, the north is going to grow a lot. I can see it. It's probably the most attractive side of the metro, and developers aren't going to let it be. I definitely see Huntsville becoming incorporating more and more into the metro than Angleton.
