I like that we are close to great services, shopping, highways yet it is a safe and quiet community. The public service crew does a great job at keeping the area pretty and clean. The one thing I do not like it the lack of competition for better internet service. Many residents I have spoken are unhappy with the poor internet service. We should let Verizon in!

My schools were great; The people are friendly and welcoming; All is safe and the police force is good, with no incidents or problems. The zoning requires buffer wild zones, sidewalks, and clear drainwater plans for all new construction. There are many stores and theaters and the highways are well maintained. However, there is very little night life, especially for young people, and you must travel 10-20 miles to get to any.
Very safe area, diverse population, convenient place to live. North Allegheny is a wonderful school district that has many excellent teachers and offers lots of classes that other schools don't, such as college classes like organic chemistry and anatomy and AP classes. Very good place for working couple to grow up in a quaint neighborhood with their three kids and a dog.
