Paloma Creek is a master-planned community in eastern Denton County, Texas, United States. The community is listed by the U.S. Census Bureau as two separate census-designated places, "Paloma Creek" and "Paloma Creek South", separated by land within the town limits of Little Elm, Texas. As of the 2010 census, the Paloma Creek CDP (known locally as "Paloma Creek North") had a population of 2,501, while Paloma Creek South had a population of 2,753.[1]

Paloma Creek was developed by Dallas-based Provident Realty Advisors over an area of approximately 1,200 acres (4.9 km2). The complete master-planned community is located north and south of U.S. Route 380 in an unincorporated area governed by the Denton County Fresh Water Supply Districts 8-A, 8-B, 11-A, 11-B, and 11-C. The Dallas North Tollway and Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge are major factors for the rapid residential growth in the area.[2]

In early 2005, the first phase of homes was completed.

Upon its completion, the community will be populated with some 5,500 homes[3] constructed by several different builders.

Paloma Creek is divided into the sections listed below:

  • Paloma Creek North - 900 home sites, comprising the "Paloma Creek" census-designated place
  • Paloma Creek South Phases I, II and III - 4,200 home sites with possible multiple housing in phase 2 (currently agriculture)

Many children living in Paloma Creek attend schools within the Denton Independent School District. They attend Paloma Creek Elementary School, Navo Middle School, and Denton High School or Denton Ryan High School.

A good number of the houses in the southern area of the community are located within the Little Elm Independent School District.[4]

Protection and services

Police protection is provided by the Denton County Sheriff's Office. The fresh water supply districts further contract with the sheriff for extra patrol services with a dedicated deputy and vehicle. Fire protection is provided by the City of Aubrey Fire Department funded by a monthly fee, added to the water bill, to cover residents of Paloma Creek, Providence, and Savannah. The town of Little Elm is required to serve the commercial areas, as they are located in its town limits. Water and sewer is provided by a fresh water supply district who contracts with Mustang SUD for billing purposes and Waste Management for trash and recycling.
