Acting as a general citizen of the Grayson community I enjoy the cleanliness of the area as there is little to no trash scattered about haphazardly. I also enjoy the many community activities and opportunities that can be found posted and advertised around Grayson. I would like to see a more emphasized traffic system including a few more signs and possibly crossing guards. Overall, Grayson is a wonderful place to live with many opportunities waiting to be explored.

As a current resident in Grayson, I have seen the city change drastically. Since the early 2000's, Grayson has funded for new schools that were in close proximity to new homes/apartments. I am for one thankful of this upgrade because I got to grow up in a safe environment that not only pushed you to be the best in school but inoverall. However, as ye life ars passed I started to feel anxious and unsafe in my own neighborhood. If I could have the peace of mind knowing I am secure it would be much appreciated.
My family and I have only lived within our house for the past 2 years but we have loved it. From the layout of our actual house, to our neighbors, and the community club house, we find it cozy and relaxing. My parents are especially in love with our neighborhood and have decided on permanently residing in our current house which says something because we have moved to about 7+ house in my lifetime alone. I just hope whomever reads this will find the same happiness that we did in Westfield Reserves.
