Is any of you familiar with Crescent Ponds neighborhood in Blaine? We are relocating to that area and are considering that community. Any opinions or suggestions will be very appreciated.

We considered buying in that development, but we chose another development (The Lakes) instead. Why? One reason was that the development at Crescent Ponds currently has only one main road in and out of the entire development. Another reason is that the house we considered there was close to the intersection of the main road and we were not interested in any of the other available properties they had at the time. This was back in the spring of 2010. The developers also plan to eventually open another road to the main road that would have been very close to the house we were considering. That would have meant that about half of the traffic in and out of the development would have eventually gone right by our front door. Plus, my realtor (who is awesome) advised me and my husband that it is only a matter of time before the main road there is expanded to four lanes. I realize that might not be an issue for some people, but my husband and I did not like the idea. We were concerned that it would eventually devalue our property there. We also did not like the fact that there are power lines that run directly through the neighborhood. Finally, we did not like the fact that the neighborhood is bereft of trees. It is built on a site that used to be a sod farm, so there were never any mature trees there to leave intact. Again, all of this is based on what we could see and find out, and what was a good fit for us. I realize that other people probably love it there, because plenty of people have moved there.

Funny, my best friend growing up lived a few blocks from that development. I know nothing about the development itself but I'm very familiar with the area.
