Monroe Township Reviews

I think the crime in Lucas is very low. There are always occurrences, but it is surprising when something occurs in Lucas. Many people will bring it into Lucas, but permanent residences do not actively partake in harsh criminal activity. The police do circle the village, but are not around very much. We had speed cameras for a while, but ended up taking them away because of many complaints. The only concerns I have are about drugs. Many underage consumption issues are around Lucas and that does bother me.

I think Lucas is a very friendly village with lots of farmland. This small town holds lots of people that are all very close. The school system is very small so many of the students receive more help from teachers, which results in a quality education. Lucas is advancing slowly and effectively. It is creating more jobs by opening the local community center, a Dollar General, and the gas station. If I had to choose to live here again I definitely would. I would like my kids to grow up in this small town. It is a great atmosphere for a family. Even though there isn't much to do in Lucas, it is not too far from some major cities. I think Lucas will be around for a lot longer.
