We live in HSV (Saline Co part) and have been here 5 years. I much prefer Benton to HS for several reasons, and even tho we don’t visit much, we find the following to be true as related to HS. People are nicer, businesses seem to to appreciate our being there, has a nicer “feel” when driving around, and nicer neighborhoods overall. I would much prefer living in Saline County any day

It's a good place with good people, but as a teenager, there's really nothing to do here. There are a lot of restaurants and a few good stores, but there's not many inexpensive things to entertain the youth.
Saline county has been a great place to live from infancy to adulthood. I was born and raised in this city and have never had any problems. The neighborhoods are safe thanks to the local police. I can always rest assured knowing I am safe here in saline county. I would like to see changes as well. This county has grown and developed so much since I can remember. This is why I want change. I want this county to constantly grow and change to better its residents. Here recently I have noticed that some of these changes are taking place. New shopping malls, hotels, housing of all kinds. The one thing I am not impressed with is the bad utilization of space that builders are using. It seems as if they are only developing in certain towns while leaving others in the past. This is causing over population in some cities and contractors to build right on top of other new developments. The new developments need to be wide spread not just in one city.
