I may not have the same experiences as others with the city, but from where I stand, it feels very inclusive and safe. There are lots of activities to be apart of and Town Center is very nice to visit. So many parks to roam and a lot of building (as in building houses, restaurants, etc.) going on. Though I see how nice expanding is and creating more stability in jobs,etc., I always love looking at the trees and industry (to me) is very unpleasing. I hate watching construction workers tear down trees and put up cramped houses that are way too expensive just to over crowd the streets and schools. Traffic keeps getting worse and worse.

Mill creek is a hub for suburban consumerism and family residency. It is a great, safe place to live , especially for families. There are a plethora of parks and trails to explore and to embellish the quality of every day life. The main thing I would like to see improve in Mill Creek is an increase in traffic flow efficiency. There is a lot of stop lights, and therefore, a large amount of time wasted in the car.
Mill Creek is a wonderful little city with a strong community. It is safe, well-maintained, and has wonderful shopping centers. However, additions such as a movie theater and more healthy places to spend a late evening would be welcome.
