Which of these two is better based on the following factors:

1) Neighborhood in terms of safety
2) Diversity in terms of Asians and Hispanics
3) Difficulty of commute to Downtown Dallas
4) Property Tax
5) More places around the areas for dining, shopping, etc.

Thanks.

1) Plano.

2) Plano has more Asians... Arlington has more Hispanics. There is a good Hispanic presence in East Plano, but not in Plano in general.

3) Plano. You can choose between US 75 or the Dallas North Tollway. Both are straight shots at downtown.

4) Arlington: (Median real estate property taxes paid for housing units with mortgages in 2008: $3,253 (2.4%)

Median real estate property taxes paid for housing units with mortgages in 2008: $4,402 (2.0%)

5) Plano has more... It has two malls (Willow Bend and Collin Creek) and Stonebriar Mall is in Frisco (which has plenty of restaurants and amenities.) There are also the Shops at Legacy which is located on Legacy Dr. and the Dallas North Tollroad.

How freaky is it to bump up a thread from 2006 from what appears to be a banned member? I don't get it. What's the motivation?

No worries, wasn't singling you out and should have clarified. You merely replied after it had already been bumped. (And I'm now replying again too, lol.)

Just wanted to add my two cents since bumping up an old thread to give it first page visibility makes sense when it contains valuable insights or data. Or if you just want to add relevant info to keep things current, sure, get that too. And I usually can't stand when folks play wannabe moderator and try to police thread activity. But I admit confusion when someone bumps up a really, really old thread and then just leaves a two-word reply. If "um" is a word, lol. Oh well. Go Plano!
