Life in Irving
My family's lived here since the 70's. I've since then grown up here. Irving is good for anyone looking for that suburb life style. The Cowboys have sadly moved out and, being near DFW airport, it's open to a lot of new people passing thru or moving in. A new strip club welcomes you as you come in thru the airport, they opened a year late due to fighting the majority of residence opposed to the idea and feel it does not reflect the towns people accurately. Strip club owner i more proud of his victory do doubt. A lot of Hispanic people have moved in (enough to note population growth in the early 90's.) My grandparents call south Irving "little mexico", and I think they all came from grand prairie, the next city south. Lots of family want to move out feeling it is not the same town they moved too, due to other developments. New muslin moscs have been built thru out the city. lots of Katrina victims are still noticeably here. Very crowded. Now, the next city west, is Euless. Euless aka(use less)in the 70's Euless police by reputation would harass people. They have since then cleaned up their act. Oddly enough, it's Euless P.D. who's now having problems with Irving P.D. Such as falsifying citations to read Irving Streets, while on Euless streets. Generating more revenue for the city of Irving. Which is no doubt financing new city "improvements". Irving officers have been known to "forget" to give lady's their identification back, only to use info to look up and even pursue them personally or (ask them out). Irving police assume our children have no parents and it's there obligation to raise them. A lot of focus on "knocking some since" into those teens. Be aware, that assigned judges to this district support Revenue for the city, over true justice and make there rulings accordingly. There are at least three new schools to house population growth. If you don't want your child speaking Spanish, move north or west, of the city. A good friend of mine was entering the local police force and was harassed by an officer,He sued the department and won. A San Fransisco style complex has been put in los Colinas area (yuppy land) and a dart rail bus after that, to take you to and from a large event venue put in next to and after that. This is just an over view of life style to look forward to, in this area.
