Evansdale is a small suburb of Waterloo, Iowa. It has a small town feel but with the added benefit of being close to a larger town with more options for entertainment, shopping and employment. The City of Evansdale keeps the town clean and the roads are in good repair. In the winter, the road crews do an excellent job of clearing and maintaining the roads. There is also an excellent trail system through the town, offering a great way to enjoy the outdoors. One thing that I would like to see improved in Evansdale is the shopping area. I would like to see a nice little restaurant go into the town to draw people to our area. Being so close to larger big box type stores, it is hard for a smaller mom and pop type of shop to make a go of it in Evansdale, but I would like the town to get some sort of niche to bring more people to the area, whether it s some sort of entertainment or a restaurant (the kind of place that people drive for miles just to have that specialty that they offer).

I love this little town. Its small, quaint, and friendly. So far I've never heard of police sirens. Nice and quiet
I love the small town feel as well as being so close to a city that has just about everything my family and I need. I do however do not like anything about the school system. Evansdale does not currently have their own school system and the children are bussed to Waterloo (high crime rate city) for school and I think that if Evansdale were to colonize their own school system our town would grow more together as a whole and make living in this town so much better.
