I love how Lowell has grown into a great place to live and how accessible it is to get places. On the other hand, it does come with a lot of construction along the Bellview street which could get annoying at times when there’s a copious amount of bumps and rock and gravel that could get stuck underneath your car

It is a very small community, but that's what makes it great. There's a lot of family owned businesses around and community based. The law enforcement and responders are caring as well.
Lowell is a very relaxing place. Very calm. We have everything that we need with the tranquility of not being at the center of a bustling city. The only downside is the lack of community. Neighbors don't necessarily know each other and you have to drive to the town over for entertainment or a good night out.
