Yeah, they are not a big issue. I live down by Bristow Road in the towns and I usually only hear the horns for the railroad crossing. It really isn't that loud outside and even less inside. They do run about every hour or so, but they seem to end ~10:30 ish for the most part. I sleep right through them, but then I have slept through fire alarms as well.

My wife and I have lived in NBV for over a year now and love it. Our neighbors are great; friendly and inviting. At times, parties/large gatherings, we do have cars parked around our lot but its rare. The one time we were planning such an event we informed our neighbors. The HOA isn't really a concern for us; we haven't had any issues. We are excited for the new schools and hopefully a shopping center soon. Though the Promenade Town Centre is under construction now with a theater, coastal flats, Rio Grande, etc... The homes are selling quickly now in the community though I don't know the prices they're selling for. We are more then happy and plan to be here a long time.

The hard cold truth behind the school zoning is them trying to get financial diversity and money and volunteers into the schools. That's why they bus kids in from 20 minutes away. Its really sad, people pay gigantic prices for these homes to get into good school districts and they screw them and send their kids into the ghetto. They figure if you have a big enough problem with it you will send them to private schools. Many people in my area do a lot of networking and grade manipulation to make sure their kids are able to get transfers to the decent schools.

Hi folks,

My wife and I are interested in moving to NBV. What type of TV/Internet service is available there? We have had nothing but terrible service whenever we have dealt with Comcast in the past. I would willingly pay up to 100% more than Comcast prices for any service other than Comcast. We have had Verizon DSL and now have Verizon FIOS and love it. Does Verizon offer either DSL or FIOS in NBV. If not, has anyone raised the issue with Verizon to determine when or whether it is planned?

Thanks for your help.

You're "SOL"!
No plans to have FIOS availble in the near future.:(

TV: Comcast, Direct, DISH, and local.
Internet: Comcast, Verizon DSL, and possibly 4G with good setup

Thanks Resident. We lived w/ DirecTV and Verizon DSL for years waiting for FIOS in our neighborhood and we can do it again. We use Netflix streaming now for most on-demand viewing. From what I've heard, DSL bandwidth ought to be able to handle that.

Couldn't tell ya with DSL. I use Comcast for Netflix and other streaming services and it works well. However new Netflix pricing may have me canceling service. There's 3+ Redbox Koisks within a mile here. For a buck ($1.50 for BluRay) you can't go wrong.

FIOS was supposed to come to my Bristow neighborhood a year ago then suddenly everything went silent. I'm using DirecTV for TV service and Verizon DSL for Netflix. The streaming works fine. Considering dropping Netflix also due to the pricing changes, but that's another thread altogether.

Bristow Village has always been at Ellis as far as the boundaries go. It has nothing to do with financial diversity, money or volunteering - a lot of it has to do with the schools being way overcrowded already. When Bristow Village was built - Cedar Point and Bristow Run was already well over capacity - there was no room for the kids from Bristow Village to go to either of these schools. To say these homeowners were screwed is unfair - home buyers need to check boundary lines before buying and they can't assume that by the time their kids are old enough - new schools will be built and the boundary lines will be changed. Sure it could happen but you can't count on it, or transfers.

Ellis is a moot point. New Bristow Village has been rezoned to T. Clay Wood Elementary. The neighborhood has also been rezoned to Patriot High School.

I went out of town for 2 weeks and I saw they marked up for fiber install back behind my townhouse. My neighbor is getting it but is starting to get irritated. It was supposed to be in and running already but hasn't been hooked up. the sales guy told him he could get a discount, but when he called Verizon, the person on the other end never heard of it and just getting to someone seemed like a pain.
While it should be cheaper than Comcast, I am going to wait and let them get it in and then think about switching over.

I experienced a few installation dates FIOS failed to show for but kept on their tails about it and got it in. If you stay persistent (and remain reasonably calm about it) Verizon will offer a small compensation for your time and inconvenience.

Heard over the weekend that the new developer that bought the foreclosed commercial land there at 28 & Bristow is wanting to add a 200 unit apartment complex along 28 at Battalion Square.

From what I heard, the developer doesn't think there is enough people around to support a shopping center unless he gets to put in the apartment complex. That would mean a lot more traffic through the neighborhood on that side.
