I lived on torrey pines in 49009 for seven years. It is a nice, friendly & safe neighborhood with low taxes compared to portage. It has no HOA fees . The larger lots give a better look to the neighborhood and allow kids to play soccer in front yards. The 12 th street elementary is a brand new 14 Million dollar school. Trulia ranks 49009 as the most popular neighborhood which is fully justified. The population in texas township grew by 40% in the last 10 years.
