The online community is very active and involved. People take initiative in helping neighbors find deals, sell items, and even find lost pets. There are normally police circulating the area regularly which helps keep a safer environment. I would like to see more regulations on keeping yards trimmed and houses cleaned up.

I have lived in La Vergne since I was five years old. I absolutely love it here, but there are always negatives no matter where you go. The area is very safe unless you go to the "bad" part of the town. Just like everywhere else La Vergne has a "good" side and a "bad" side. Overall, La Vergne mostly has a bad wrap, because we are so diverse and at my highschool, a senior was killed two years in a row.
I have lived in La Vergne for 11 years now and I have seen it grow in both businesses and population. It is a quiet and calm place with plenty of real estate! There is plenty of diversity in this small town. It also has great public schools. (The La Vergne schools are considered to be the most diverse schools in Rutherford County)
