Very close to everything, affordable housing, becoming more diverse
A lot of new businesses instead of the old pawn your title shops and used car lots.
The backward thinking leaders are slowly going away
Small community and diverse. Don't like the police.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
