The school district has been lousy for years, and now it is so bad they advertise to attract outside students because so many who live there attend private school, home school or try to get OUT of the district. The southern area around Joe Pool lake is safer and upscale, but I worry it will eventually deteriorate, too. They're trying to promote amenities like the race track while ignoring basic issues like safety and quality of schools. The way they handled the 161 extension was terrible. They spent years getting it through, but they didn't use that time to buy up land as people moved out and sold. So people who didn't know about the proposed project bought land, built homes only to lose it to eminent domain 5 years later though the project had been theoretical for 20 years. Bad city management

Crime has been worsening over time in the northern urbanizing area. Not all demographic shifts are for the better.
