Mesquite is going thru the same thing. Many folks are leaving while many are staying. You can live were you want but it irks me when they lie to me as to the reason they are leaving.

You know why I'd move out of Mesquite if I lived there? And it would be the same reason I'd give for moving out of many areas of Frisco, McKinney, Allen and Plano. THE TRAFFIC!!!!! No kidding. My hubby can't stand the traffic we have now around Firewheel and it is NOTHING compared to w/in 5 miles of Town East, Stonebriar, etc. LOL!!!

I wish I could afford to live near Downtown were I work. 12 years ago the inner city consisted of the well off, retired or poor and the neighborhoods reflected this. I did not fit into either category so the burbs I went. Spending nearly 2 hrs everyday in a car/bus is really starting to wear on me.

Diversity is still one of the greatest assets of living in the southern suburbs. While there have been demographic changes in southwest Dallas County over the past ten or so years, it is still home to a wide variety of people.
