Lakeville's downtown is cute, and has gotten some fun restaurants. Chipotle just opened up. The city is growing in leaps and bounds. The post office is not keeping up well. Unpleasantries when reaching out to the city zoning/water drainage teams. Farm land is being developed into housing development after housing development. In hindsight, I regret moving to Lakeville. People don't want to talk about the bad points. They sweep it under the rug and pretend it isn't there.

The Downtown area needs some improvement. There is a need for more restaurants and businesses that are first different from nearby communities and then a diverse selection other than the same business duplicated. There is a need for more of a community center or at least a teen center for kids to hang out without getting into trouble. It would be nice to have more businesses that were catered towards families. There seems to be a mish mash look to the Downtown area. There needs to be a push for people who want to live and work in the area, not just have a home and commute. There has been a lot of improvement made in the local parks and bike trails, but there could be more outdoor recreational areas or music concert venues. Also, there is no coop or healthy living stores that would offer continuous year round options to standard grocery store like Trader Joes or Fresh Thyme.
Lakeville is a very peaceful city, that is incorporated with people that are absolutely nice. Grocery stores, and other shops are accessible, and are very close by, no matter where you live in Lakeville. The schools, and education system is absolutely nice too. Overall, Lakeville will not dissapoint, and will give you the experience you would imagine.
