Pulaski County Reviews

rapidly growing midsize city. The city is very tech and design heavy, huge food scene, full of educated young professionals, and close geographically to cities with large healthcare and finance industries. Weather is mild for the most part but the summers are extremely hot and humid. area- feels super quaint and there's a strong community vibe. The natural scenery is beautiful and there are tons of ways to enjoy the outdoors, if that's something you're interested in. Most people that were born and raised in Little Rock seem to have an adversity to adventure and broadening their horizons. Public schools - Apparently they are really bad and if you want to remain in the city get prepared to pay crazy high prices for private schools. Again, you can live in the suburbs, but who wants to live in a white-flight wasteland.

Pulaski County is overall a good and safe community, with lots of kind people if sought out. I would love to see more hardworking people, more honesty, and more general goodness that any individual should want in a community. The public libraries are fantastic and there are lots of programs for citizens of all ages to get involved in. Though this does not determine the goodness of a county, I would like to see roads improved. It would make our environment look much cleaner and nicer. Lastly, perhaps the best addition to our community would be new-found joy in every individual. Communities are made up of every-day people- hurting, sick, busy, lost, happy- people in every stage and season. It would be so good if people could find and plant their joy, and spread it with those around them.
I have only been in Little Rock area for only 2 years and a month. I like how they have different opinions to go to school, shop, or eat! I would change the city by adding another homeless home,to feed and shelter the homeless!
