Lake Jackson was most defintely a well-planned community, and the layout of the streets are well-organized and unique. It was originally a company town for Dow, but they didn't want to to look that way, so the original town planner came up with some great ideas. For one, all of the streets were constructed with the idea that not one tree more than necessary should die for this purpose. The streets might not be perfectly straight, but it's beautiful aesthetically and adds a great atmosphere to the place. Street names were also managed well; streets heading away from downtown are all called something Way, including This Way, That Way, and Any Way. Other streets were named after flowers or other plants, such as Jalepeno.
