I like that Hurlock is a small town and that most people know everyone. I would change the town to include more events for school aged youth. At night time there is not a lot for kids to do but to walk the town. If they had a place they could go and spend time with extra activities it would deter them from getting into trouble

I love the area it is a quite small community. Great place to raise children. Making a difference in a positive social change is one thing I would change. Offering more services for youth, and providing more community oriented outside agencies to participate in furthering education for those that would like to make a difference.
Small rural town, room for more job opportunities and development, but love that I am closer to my family.
