Highland Park Reviews

In this area you often see police traveling around residential neighborhoods and behind buildings. The police are very visible and know where the "hang out" spots are so they monitor them regularly. The crime rate is fairly low. As of the last few years, we've had several arrests for substance abuse. Everyday you see this in the local newspaper. I'm really glad to see that the police are working at getting this taken care of in the area.

I've lived in this area for 18 years of my life and love the mountains and the seasonal changes. It's a rural area and a fairly safe environment. There isn't a lot of industry in the area but if you are willing to travel 30+ miles you can find better paying jobs but you have to be willing to commute a half hour to an hour away.
I love the area I live in. It is not only what I call a little big town, but it is beautiful with the season changes and the mountains. It has businesses moving in and other businesses moving out.
