The city offers so many things to their residents including a visit from Santa every year! He goes up and down the neighborhoods on his sled accompanied by our awesome police department. Our street has a block party every year where our fire department comes and helps the children squirt the water hose. Our neighborhood is close to so many things, shopping, activities and the freeway. Overall, we love living here.

Its very Diverse and friendly. Great area to raise a family. Very safe area to live. I live here from 2012 to 2014, which at the time was peaceful area and i left wishing and never did so when the opportunity came back to move there again I did this year. Soon I will be getting married next year and hopefully will find a great house to move in.
I love the amenities and close knit community we have here. I wish we had more amenities and available street parking, however.
