Have you been looking at new homes for sale in Little Elm? This scenic community, located along the banks of Lake Lewisville, boasts a small-town charm and lakeside character that appeals to newcomers and long-time residents alike.
The town hosts several annual events like the July Jubilee and ER Centers of America Autumn Fest, a four-day festival and carnival featuring an array of food, entertainment, shopping and more. There are also plenty of parks and green spaces for residents to enjoy. In fact, Little Elm’s commitment to urban forestry has been recognized by national and regional organizations. The Arbor Day Foundation has designated Little Elm a Tree City USA for 3 straight years (2011-2013). And, in 2013, the Cross Timbers Urban Forestry Council presented Little Elm with a Bronze Leaf Award.
Little Elm also prides itself on being a safe place to live, and it has the stats to back it up. In 2013, Little Elm was named by the FBI as the safest city in Texas. According to Little Elm Police Chief Waylan Rhodes, “The residents’ attitude toward crime and other illegal activity in Little Elm is highly commendable. Every day, our officers are witness to a stern intolerance of such behavior in virtually all neighborhoods.”
The town also places a strong emphasis on urban planning, which enables Little Elm to choose how it evolves, grow its tax base, survive change, plan for synchronized development, determine how it looks and feels, and improve the overall quality of life for residents. That effort has been recognized by the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association. The group honored Little Elm with a Certificate of Achievement for Planning Excellence award during the following years: 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
