New Lewisville Residents: Welcome!
My opinion: While I'm pleased to see that other people see Lewisville as a great place to live, I don't like seeing growth numbers this high. Rapid growth like this is taxing on our infrastructure, causing us to have to build new roads, schools, sewers and so forth on an accelerated timetable. As we become more built out, hopefully it will slow, and allow us to catch up. Growth does accelerate our economy a bit, but not in a sustainable way, in my opinion.
