I've lived in Frisco since 1994 when we had 6,500 people and one stoplight.  There has not been one single case of a blood test coming back with unsafe levels of lead in a person's body.  There has not been one single confirmed case of any illness that had anything to do with Exide.  Do your own homework before you consider moving anywhere - don't just read someone's slanted opinions and make up your mind.  My husband, three sons and I love Frisco and aren't going anywhere anytime soon.  It's been a joy to watch Frisco grow, the schools are fantastic, and there are parks and bike trails all over the place.  We have very little crime and an attentive police force and fire department.  It just doens't get much better than Frisco, Texas!

this article is BS...they are averaging from the year 2000, and the numbers are deceptive when you account for the last few years and the economic bust. Shame on MSN.

You couldn't pay me to live in Port St. Lousy. It's urban sprawl at it's worse. Traffic is terrible. I cringe everytime I have to drive on US1 or PSL Blvd. What port? There isn't one. The ports are in Stuart and Fort Pierce.

Henderson Nevada looks like an awful place to live. Unfortunately, it looks like most of what has become a very homogenized looking country. Subdivisions and apartment complexes surrounding a strip mall. You could go from Atlanta, to Dallas to Phoenix and it would all look the same. By the way, why is it that most of these towns are in states that just experienced a real estate bust?

the city of pflugerville grew nearly 200% from 2000 to 2010 census

16335 in 2000 census and 46,936 in the 2010 census

pflugerville is next to round rock so one wonders how it was missed.

 

but like most items  on msn and realtor they never get the facts actually right

We have lived in Frisco, Texas for the past 12 years, owned three different homes, and now have 2 rentals and our personal residence.  It is a wonderful city.  We have watched the growth go through the roof, yet without jeopardizing city amenities or quaintness.  My real estate company has flourished.  It is a real joy being a part of the families of Frisco.  My wife is an elementary school principal, so we're connected in business as well as education.  "Come on down!"

What a misleading article.

The vast majority of these fast-growing "cities" are mere exurbs of major sun-belt metropoles like Miami, Dallas, and Los Angeles. 

As poster National Negotiators mentioned before me: what goes up MUST come down.  Growth in these "communities" comes at the expense of other communities within the same metropolitan area.  This is not good sign; it's actually the effect of the bad urban policies we have in America.  People and businesses leave older, established communities, which then lose their tax base, and become urban (or suburban) wastelands.  It's a system that keeps repeating itself, and is such a waste of land and resources.

The folks that write these articles have absolutely NO knowledge on housing, transport, and urban issues.

Port St. Lucie sounds great except directions are a little off.

Last time I was there it was about 2 hours NORTH of Ft. Lauderdale.

Rambo 2 is right......if south would really be water front property.

Ah yes but if you are moving to Frisco you might what to research what we long time residents are now finding out. For years Exide , a battery recycling plant has been releasing unsafe amounts of lead into our air. USA Today broke it to us and the city peddling fast. They are offering blood test and have told us that with in a two mile range of the plant do not open your windows.

How can Fox News be #1   and be so darn good     and Fox Sports be so bad and awful?  They really need help, but don't want to be contacted. For them, no News is good News.  They cover for each other. Don't want upper managment to know what is going on. They must be awful also because they are clueless.    mike    not so hard is it?

Interesting that, according to this article, Port St. Lucie is both 2 hours south of Orlando and 2 hrs south of Ft. Lauderdale. (That's what I call OCEANFRONT PROPERTY!)  LOL!
