There’s a little bit of everything! Small town feel, city vibe, parks, resources. It’s perfect! I’ve lived here for six years and it’s been nothing but great!

Its a great place! Friendly people, good police Dept, attempting revitalization. Connected bike trail. Easy to get to shopping and malls.
Would like to see the community clean up a little more and revitalize the area. Have more employment, more housing opportunities. More community involvement. There is no advertised community center with places and activities for kids and families.
