Great people, good infrastructure, plenty of shopping for anything you need, and plenty of local parks for the kids!
I would like to see more sidewalks put into place in Coon Rapids, there is a lack of well kept roads and back streets. There is an improvement in the educational buildings. There needs to be more places to go out and do things, more restaurants or bowling alleys etc. There is a good job opportunity and new and upcoming business which is nice.
