Why Choose Los Fresnos?
Here are a few reasons why. As the Los Fresnos community grows so too does its need for additional retail and services. With a population growth of nearly 20% since 2000 (5,600 currently) and the development of large residential subdivisions along the city’s periphery, Los Fresnos is poised to more than double its current population in the next ten years. Combine that growth with an increase in traffic, which nearly numbers 600,000 annually, from Expressway 77 to the Gulf Coast and what you have, at this moment in time, is a potent combination of affordability and opportunity for entrepreneurs with an eye toward the future and an interest in taking advantage of an emerging market. Unwilling to leave the City’s economic future to mere chance, City officials are working diligently to coordinate future economic development through proactive and progressive programs to assist businesses in locating and expanding in the area. Possessing a pro-business attitude that is a reflection of the “can do” spirit of the community, City officials are eager to discuss how to make Los Fresnos the site of your next retail outlet, restaurant, professional office or medical clinic. Perhaps the new English translation for Los Fresnos is “We Mean Business!”
“Quality of Life”
Why do people make the Los Fresnos area their home? Is it the excellence of the school district? Yes, in part. Is it because it is a safe place to raise a family? You bet, that’s another piece of the puzzle. Is it the selection and affordability of local housing? Sure, that’s another reason. Is it the quite and convenient centralized location between busy metropolitan areas and crowded tourist destinations? That sure does sound good. On the whole however, most people choose to call the Los Fresnos area their home because it reminds them of the community they grew up in, where people say hello when they bump into you at the corner grocery store, where kids can ride their bikes out in the street, where the Fourth of July is a heart-felt community celebration, where the whole town shows up for the Christmas Parade, where homecoming kings and queens are local celebrities, and where little league baseball games are a very big deal! Los Fresnos is also perfectly situated between two PGA quality golf courses in Rancho Viejo Golf Club and SPI Golf Club and one of the leading medical facilities in South Texas, Valley Regional Medical Center is just minutes away, so whether you’d like a chip in the rough or hate the chip in your knee, we got what it takes to take care of you. If this sounds like a place you would like to call home and raise your family, well then we’ll leave the light on for you!
