The area has developed somewhat haphazardly, with urban development to the south and southeast, while the areas to the north, east and southwest are largely rural areas.

Lorenz said the area is expected to continue to expand southward over the next several years, as work on South Beltway and Standing Bear High School is completed, both of which are expected to be completed in 2023.
