There are some drug dealers, and no one has done anything about it. Overall, it is usually quiet during the weekdays, but there is a lot of traffic during the daytime. There is one house in the neighborhood who often has parties on weekends and they blast music until four in the morning so it's hard to sleep sometimes. The train is not loud when it passes, so you don't have to worry about waking up at night. A benefit of living here is the program they provide for all the parks in the community. They offer sports, swimming, clubs, activities, etc. if you live here. The main bad thing is that everyone at Commerce, especially Rosewood, are a bunch of snakes, the adults more so than the children, and they are always causing drama, spreading rumors, and they try too hard at being up in everyone's business.

The community offers a lot to it's residents. They offer a fully equipped gym and swimming pool. As well as an afterschool program for children and teens. They offer opportunities for in-state travel, and activities for adults such as martial arts classes, pottery, dance, etc. All for a very low cost.
I have grown up in the City of Commerce and lived there for nearly eighteen years. It is a very close community with lots of activities for kids to participate in. We are also proud to say that the Citadel is located within our city.
