My husband and I just sold our home in Bedford and are interested in moving to Hometown in North Richland Hills. We love the feel of the neighborhood and community but would really like to get some feedback from anyone who lives or has lived there or from anyone familiar with the community. I see there were some discussions on here about Hometown but nothing since about 2008. We are hoping to move into a community that has other couples and young families. Thanks in advance!

something new to add is that the city has reached accord with developer of the new strip center where FireHouse Subs/Chaps/etc are--where the apts are above them-- to build MORE apts with some retail space--but I think mainly apts--

you should check how that new high density construction is going to change the streets and the car flow around that area--
I know that Home Town is behind that--but people will be cutting through Home Town area to get to some of those apts I bet--and there will just be more people in the area in general

I live across Precinct Line in Hurst and I am not looking forward to the increased traffic--that stretch of Precinct Line/Hwy 26 is already one of the busiest surface roads in NE Tarrant co

The apts will likely bring in more children to local schools and more people to use city services like parks (and police)

There is no way people are going to cut through the existing Hometown development to get to new houses or apartments that are proposed closer to the Venue....unless they already live there.

Navigating Hometown is a challenge unless you are thoroughly familiar with it. There is one road and one road only that connects the exiting area with the new area over the canal. Right now it is the road that parents take to the elementary school or the other businesses already over there like Kroger.

People will either take Grapevine Hwy to the road beside The Venue or take Mid Cities to Hawk Ave by the school.
To think that anyone that is specifically heading to businesses or apartments or the new homes that are also proposed by going through Hometown is far off the mark.

It looks nice. My relatives live in NYC. It reminds me of that kind of neighborhood. In that apts are above businesses. Your moving from Bedford, so you know there is no public transportation. That was what many of the post back in '08 '09 were about. People wanting to move here and work downtown. You need a car, to get to the train station in Richland Hills. By then, your almost there, so.....
