Would you like to live next to a highway? Who would, and we don't want to either. The Lewisville Lake Corridor Project runs through the middle of our neighborhood. This corridor will connect I 35 to the Dallas Tollway. It is estimated to carry over 40,0000 cars a day, and will be a major north Texas thoroughfare. We do not have safe access to our amenity center and the new schools on Walker Lane.
                   
When we purchased our home in May of 2003 we asked about El Dorado Parkway (which at that time ended at one end of the neighborhood) and we were told something other than the truth.

Traffic and noise are already a problem. We are unable to safely walk to the amenity center or ride bikes with our children around the neighborhood. The crosswalk does not stop traffic or even slow it down.

While picketing in McKinney, TX sales reps for Highland and Drees turned on the sprinklers in order to get rid of us. I am happy to say it did not work.

We also had to call the police when the Drees sales rep. decided to confront us with her car. We had some scary moments.

 
About Us

The following is my statement regarding the disclosure issue surrounding the purchase of my home. My husband was transferred from ?. We made several trips down to the Dallas area looking for the right home. In May of 2003 we made a trip down to continue looking at homes. We ended up in Little Elm after leaving neighborhoods in Frisco which were surrounded by very busy streets. We looked at our home which was already finished and liked it very much. We returned to the sales office to have our list of questions answered. We asked about El Dorado Parkway as to what kind of road it would be. We were told that it was a neighborhood access road. That it would connect to 720, giving us another entrance into our neighborhood (at that time there were barricades at one end of the neighborhood). We then inquired about the amount of traffic, and we were told it would be local traffic only. At that time we signed a contract and left our deposit on the home, returning to.

If we had known that El Dorado Parkway was part of The Lewisville Lake Corridor Project, we would not have purchased our home in El Dorado West. We have unsafe access to the amenity center and the new schools on Walker Lane.

Even now, it is almost impossible to cross over El Dorado Parkway on foot or bikes. The impact of the highway is immeasurable on my family.


A Letter to our State Representative
Little Elm, Texas 75068

Dear Representative
Will you help us? I am one of many residents who were deceived by the builders of El Dorado West. We were not informed about The Lewisville Lake Corridor Project. This will be a major thoroughfare in north Texas, which will connect I35 to the Dallas North Tollway.

This corridor runs through the middle of our neighborhood, leaving over 50% of the homes on the opposite side of our amenity center and new schools being built. It is estimated to have over 46,000 vehicles per day when the Lewisville Lake Bridge is completed in 2008.

We have been to the Town of Little Elm and they have failed to address the deceptive practices still continuing in our town. The builders and developer refused to acknowledge our problem. If we had been disclosed the vital information about the thoroughfare we could of made an informed decision regarding our family.

Please help us to hold these builders accountable. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
