Aurora Reviews

2 reviews
Living in Aurora, we have a small population, but many of us are close like family. Where I live is not in the city, but it is not completely country, we all live fairly close to each other. In the morning trying to get from Derting road, which is the road that I live on, onto Highway 114 is a huge hassle, because there are so many cars going by, that it takes forever to get on the highway, causing me to be lat many of times. If i could chose where I would live again, I love where I live, but there must isn't enough space, or privacy. This community watches each other's children, animals, and houses, so the safety rate is very high, but when it comes to wanting some privacy, everyone can always see what each other are doing.
Review Aurora
The safety ratings here are great, the police are very reliable, and the station is close in town to be convenient to everyone. Also everyone is so close that we keep an eye out for each other. The Aurora Baptist Church, which is the church that I attend across the street from my house, has a wonderful security team who is always on the look out, and keeps everyone very safe.
