Longview Texas is a great place to live. The economy in Longview is healthy. Despite a national downturn in the housing market, Longview has been growing, and home prices continue to rise.
In 2007, Longview added some major chain stores to its north side. The addition of Kohl’s, twoStarbucks, a new Target, a third Walmart supercenter on the south side, and a handful of hotels means Longview is becoming a regional hub for shopping. Keeping shoppers in Longview and away from Tyler, Dallas, and Shreveport has been an important strategy for the city. Most new construction has been located on the north side around Hawkins Pkwy. and US 259, with lesser development on the south side near Estes Pkwy.
In October 2007, Longview was recertified as a Texas Urban Main Street City. There are 89 cities in the Texas Main Street Program, 10 of them are Urban Main Street Cities. In December 2007, Longview was awarded the “Certified Retirement Community” designation by the Texas Department of Agriculture through its “Go Texan” initiative. Longview was also included in 2007 in the “Top 100 Best Cities for Young People.”
