A beautiful, safe place to live! Friendly neighbors!

The perfect example of this was two winters ago when we had a big snow storm and we were trapped in. The whole community was outside shoveling the roads, sharing stories, eating food, and having a great time together.

Very safe neighborhood. Sometimes kid pranks, and possible crime related to addiction.
Just added new multi-use center close by. Starting to have good entertainment options without too much blight.
