This area is a great place to live! The city of Vancouver is growing every year, bringing new people to the community as well as new jobs. I see it as continuing to experience growth. We have mild winters (some snow but never for more than a couple days), and great summers that aren't TOO hot and with mild humidity. Fall is beautiful with crisp mornings and evenings but warm afternoons. We don't experience tornadoes, earthquakes or floods! I have grown up in Vancouver, WA and have not lived anywhere else but from what I see on the news, I really like living in this part of the country!

We have had many vehicles broken in around my neighborhood. There was a neighbor dispute blocks away where the neighbor drove up and shot his neighbor in the head. That hadn't happened that close to us before last year. I do see the Sheriffs driving by often in this area. They don't seem to do anything about the disturbances I see . The section 8 housing has tenants coming and going to the store. Fights take place in the road, and we have seen SWAT more than 2 times last year looking for someone, with there rifles ready. People have lost there pride.
If I could do it all over again and had a choice in the matter of living in Vancouver I would not have chose here. While, it is very beautiful with plenty to do in the outdoors, it is very citified and too many people. We are very close to the city of Portland ,which has its positives and negatives. While there is much more to do in the sense of shopping and restaurants, it is negatively effecting Vancouver. The traffic and commuter's is horrid as is the housing market and general price of living is constantly rising because people are filtering in from Portland. Vancouver is going to go from a decent town to a overpriced and overpopulated city just like Portland.
