The Woodlands TX Is A Success For All Who Live There
There is a well-planned community in Texas, near Houston. It is a metropolitan area of 28,000 acres that focuses on preserving the environment. It has a variety of neighborhoods, colleges and universities, private and public schools for children and the Woodlands Church. The Woodlands TX community has been in existence for forty years.
More than 110,000 people lived there originally and that number rose to over 200,000 by 2012. Many residents work right there in the community. Its pre-schools are outstanding as is the Academy for Lifelong Learning that serves senior citizens. Apparently every educational advantage is right there in The Woodlands.
Individual villages resemble small towns. In each one are shopping centers, exceptional recreation opportunities, schools and churches. Healthcare is available as well. A person could be born, go through school to the university level, get a job and live out an entire lifetime within the boundaries of this lovely sanctuary.
Not all the homes are elegant gated communities. A wide range of architecture and prices for homes is available there. There are golf courses, lakeside dwellings and urban communities available to live in. It was not generally expected to be a success back in 1974. Now it is flourishing.
After undergoing changes in ownership it continued on its upward spiral as a desirable place to live. There is a Town Center that features a waterway like the San Antonio River Walk. People enjoy riding in water taxis known as Waterway Cruisers.
It seemed impervious to anything bad happening there. However, in 2008 it was hit by Hurricane Ike. Thousands of trees were uprooted as well as power lines. A major structure, the Cynthia Woods Mitchel Pavilion, was damaged. Prior to that, Hurricane Alicia struck in 1983.
Currently, the future looks extremely bright for this lovely community. The value of real estate there is increasing steadily. It had a population of 200,000 as of 2012, and continues to grow. In fact, the current population is high enough to qualify for federal transportation funding.
