Would like to see development to encourage small business to thrive. We need to attract families by improving such things as a great pool and better schools. We need to change laws such as No Swimming at our lakes. Be progressive and inclusive.

It's a small community. Everybody know everybody which isn't always a good thing.
Limited recreational options are available. No private gyms exist here only a small public rec facility with very limited classes.
