I like that it is a quiet neighborhood. The people in my neighborhood, mostly keep to themselves. There are not many loose animals roaming around the neighborhood. It is safe for children to play outside and ride their bikes.

Great small town experience, schools could use improvement , needs more job opportunities and better parks and recreation
I live the small community and the many job opportunities. I like how afforable it is and how peaceful. I would like to see the road work improve as there are many pot holes.
