Lucas was founded by farmers who had the foresight to establish a rural community with large lots, a country lifestyle with fresh air, room for horses, livestock and kids to roam. Lucas is defined by its winding tree-lined country roads and woods. Their vision has been safeguarded by current residents. Most lots in Lucas are 2 acres and up, with a few developments that are 1 or 1.5 acres. Lucas requires large lot sizes because sewer utilities are not provided to residential areas, or brought into the heart of the city.
Lucas residents have long defended their country lifestyle against sewer which increases taxes, traffic and population.
Horse disciplines of all types are attracted to Lucas, but trail riders are particularly drawn to it for easy access to Trinity Trails, a 26 mile horse trail around Lake Lavon. There are many existing and new horse-friendly neighborhoods in Lucas. Six different school districts serve Lucas residents, including Allen ISD, Lovejoy ISD, McKinney ISD, Plano ISD, Princton ISD, and Wylie ISD. A number of Lucas residents also choose the private Lucas Christian Academy.
Its location near the intersection Highway 121 and I-75 Central Expressway give Lucas residents easy access to the hustle and bustle of the city, including all the upscale shopping and dining of Collin Country, or a straight shot south to downtown Dallas or west to DFW International Airport. Ultimately residents are minutes away from city life, but oh so far away at home.
