I LOVE Vancouver~ Our County Parks Commission provides and promotes quality of life. We have impressive well-stocked Libraries, lots of citizen educational events. We have an excellent Public School System, Junior College and WSU, Washington State University 4 year respected and diverse curriculum University.

Our city WORKS to make it a good place to make it your home generation after generation. Our Police and Fire Departments are well-trained, compassionate, professionals. Our citizens are civically proactive and reinforce good citizenship and community involvement for the values and direction of our city future to be of pride. Also, ther are miles-n-miles of maintained hiking trails or our new Waterfront Park!

I have had a good experience growing up in Clark County, specifically Battle Ground. It is a safe place to raise kids and I attended CAM Academy for a number of years which really set me up for success as I continued my academic pursuits. I am happy to have been raised in such a beautiful place but I am also ready for a change of pace and to experience life someplace else! I wish there was more value placed on the arts and human diversity because I feel like it is certainly lacking.
I feel like the Clark county located in Vancouver wa is a very good and safe community. Although the community has some struggles with money and overall housing prices increasing causing people to move is in issue. I feel like Clark county should really take the community into more consideration with the pricing of stuff like groceries, rent, etc. Although some of these issues cause our community to struggle, Clark county is still a really good and strong community.
