“Semi Rural Lifestyle”

City boosters attribute Aledo’s explosive growth to its small-town charm, location next to a vibrant metro hub, highly rated schools and quaint scenery.

Helping spur residential growth in Aledo are major real estate projects such as Brookhollow, Morningstar, Parks of Aledo and Walsh Ranch.

Many of the people considering a move to Aledo like its proximity to major employers on the west side of Fort Worth, including defense contractor Lockheed Martin and the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base, according to Kyle Walker, director of the Center for Urban Studies at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. Suburbs like Aledo, which is located in Parker County, are attracting people who desire a “semi-rural lifestyle” but still want access to big-city jobs and amenities, Walker says.

“Massive development, however, can disrupt that desired lifestyle, plus put pressure on existing semi-rural infrastructure, which can lead to issues such as traffic congestion and, in turn, longer commutes,” Walker says. “However, many people are willing to tolerate these inconveniences in exchange for lower housing costs, a preferred lifestyle and desired schools in comparison with those neighborhoods where they might consider living that are closer to the urban center.”
