Crime & Safety

Carmel is led by a spend-happy Mayor who hand-picked his City Council through massive financial support in the last election. City debt is mounting and will come to a head in less than ten years. The schools are great but funding is low as compared to what the City wants to spend on questionable art installations and poorly-designed roundabouts. As a life-long bicyclist, I find the roundabouts dangerous and unwelcoming. Drivers commonly cut across lanes to 'straighten' the roundabouts and are rude to bicyclists riding safely and courteously on shared roads.
Great schools, friendly neighbors, safe, bike-friendly, kid-friendly, award-winning youth sports programs, many outdoor art festivals and activities. Great place to live!
Carmel is a city like none other. Over the past 20 years, it has invested in the local arts, check out The Palladium! ... and we have more roundabouts than any city in the world, which means traffic flow is awesome! No wonder so many companies are moving their corporate headquarters here!
