Everything is growing and becoming widespread. The community is opening new businesses and hopefully the roads will start to improve with all the traffic. Traffic is the downfall to having things in such a close area as you live. The housing seems to very reasonable in comparison to other cites. Mount Zion road is the only area that is completely behind in expansion and very dangerous to drive. They have been doing construction on and off for years with no change at all. This is putting a damper on the city and its growth.
I love my county been here for 4 years. A lot can be added so the black people can be comfortable in the county and don’t have too go to cincinnati. For like hair products , salons, barber shops, etc.
