Buena Vista Township Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
Not much minor crime but our area has had an outstanding amount of major crime such as murder, large drug busts etc that one would not expect to have in a little country town. Cops quick to respond to minor traffic violations but not so fast to respond to 911 calls. To be fair, it is located between two districts, local and state police.
Review Buena Vista Township
Though the area I live in in particular is a great family raising neighborhood, there are parts of my town that are potentially dangerous. And it takes away from its overall quality.
Mixed races, friendly people, open spaces between houses
