This has been a rapidly growing area. Over the years companies have been expanding to the area making it much easier to enjoy all aspects of our daily lives without having to travel very far from home.
I moved here 10 years ago for better schools for my 2 son's. My oldest was the first graduating class from a brand new high school last year. I live 5 mins from 3 grocery stores, a movie theater and a fire station. I love it here. I work for a government contractor 10 min drive away. We are near 2 major highways.
